Volunteers needed for invasive weed removal
The Catskill Conservation Corps is requesting volunteers to help remove Japanese Knotweed from the vicinity of Russell Brook Falls on May 16 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
The work site is a short hike from the Russell Brook Trailhead. Volunteers will be working with Catskill Conservation Corps staff, Catskill Regional Invasive Species Partnership staff and others educated in invasive species to remove Japanese Knotweed from the area surrounding Russell Brook Falls.
Volunteers should wear hiking boots; dress appropriately for the outdoor conditions and our activities; pack a snack and bring water to stay hydrated; and bring work gloves.
No experience is necessary and tools and training will be provided on site before the weeding startings.
Pre-registration is required for the event. Register by calling (518) 6284243, by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
