It's time for our Fall work party! Come help the Audubon Vermont staff spruce up the Green Mountain Audubon Center, starting with a good old invasive species pull of Knotweed from our Huntington River Watershed!
The Green Mountain Audubon Center's 250+ acres have served as a refuge for humans and natural communities alike for over 50 years. We need your help to keep our property healthy and beautiful for all to enjoy. Elizabeth Spinney with the Agency of Natural Resources has helped us identify a plot of Japanese Knotweed near a popular river access point that we could manage in one morning. We will be working in small groups, with a mix of Audubon Staff and Board Members, Adopt-a-trail Volunteers, and you!
As an education organization, we love sharing information. Attendees of the work party are also invited to a webinar on invasive species management for trail volunteers presented by Elizabeth Spinney on October 20, 5-6 PM. Register in advance for this meeting: https://audubon.zoom.us/meeting/register/tJ0sd-uoqjMvG9FUZ0SrWbQkUhdKvtY1SwQC After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting!
