About the event

Join fellow community members for a day of service on Earth Day! Volunteers will work to remove non-native plant species on a Flanders preserved property. Non-native or invasive plants have a negative effect on native plants and wildlife communities. The goal is to reduce, minimize, or eliminate the invasive plants, clearing the way for local species to reclaim their territory and creating a healthy environment for the plants and animals that call Connecticut home. Please bring lots of water, snacks and lunch. Also, please wear closed-toe footwear, long pants and work gloves. Bring shovels, pruning shears/loppers/clippers to this event. We ask that you leave all furry friends at home. Community service hours can be provided for this event. The meeting location will be sent to those who have signed up to volunteer. Help us make a positive and lasting impact on a Flanders preserved property by joining us for this very important Community Service Day! For more information call Flanders at 203.263.3711 x14  or email program coordinator, Ana Jordan, ana@flandersnaturecenter
