Volunteer – Weedy Wildflower Removal
Saunders Woods Preserve | Sat, May 19, 2018, 9:00am - 12:00pm
Grab a friend and join Natural Lands staff and fellow volunteers in pulling dame’s rocket wildflowers from Saunders Woods’ meadow. Though pretty, these plants are invasives that crowd-out native wildflowers, and don’t support insects or butterflies. For every plant removed, we’ll plant a native wildflower in its place.
Volunteering with Natural Lands is a great way to learn about habitats and wildlife, while helping care for natural resources and connecting with like-minded people. Grab gloves, and come out to volunteer with us!
Saunders Woods Preserve is a natural oasis for wildlife and community residents in the heart of the Main Line. The Bridlewild Trail passes through the preserve and connects to a wider system of paths that wind through the community. A walk here reveals a lively forest habitat as well as an open meadow that is home to a variety of bird species.
