The Trust holds monthly volunteer work parties to maintain the trails in our preserves and manage invasive plants. These are held on the third Sunday of the month at 1 PM. Wear boots, long pants and some type of glasses and bring heavy gloves. Bring tools if you can: e.g. small clippers, hand saw (for cutting tree limbs), loppers.
