December Work Party at Sweet Springs Preserve

Hello Volunteers! We'll be hosting another volunteer work party at Sweet Springs Preserve to continue the important work that has already been done by all you wonderful folks that have come out to support local conservation and restoration.

Depending upon the number of people that come out, we'll try to tackle multiple projects. First priority will be to enhance the boundary fence in East Sweet Springs, to help prevent trespass and resource damage that has occurred there as a result of unauthorized entry through that fence.

We would also like to continue control of veldt grass in East Sweet Springs, and begin work controlling invasive English ivy at the 4th Street Overlook. Drinking water will be provided. Please wear sturdy clothes you don't mind getting dirty, including a sun hat and close-toe shoes, and bring work gloves.

We'll meet at 9:00am, at the main entrance to Sweet Springs on Ramona Avenue, and work until at least noon. I hope you can make it out to help, and I look forward to the privilege of working side-by-side with you to enhance and restore the gem that is Sweet Springs Preserve.
