Volunteers Needed to Spruce-up CMA
July 23 at 9:00 am - 12:30 pm
Great Swamp Watershed Association’s CMA
Ready to get a little dirty and sweaty in the swamp? Need community service hours? College students – looking for something to add to your resume? Join us on Friday mornings at the GSWA Conservation Management Area (CMA) to help us steward the land on the following days: July 23, 30, and August 20, 27. We will work from 9 AM to 12:30 PM and enjoy some well-earned snacks provided by GSWA Director of Land Stewardship, Hazel England. We could really use your help getting our CMA tidied up by helping us with the following tasks:
Carry in lumber, build and elevate boardwalks which will allow hikers to get through now flooded areas, clear branches and limbs that came down in recent storms, remove invasive plants, and woodchip the trails.
Be sure to wear long pants, long sleeves, and hiking boots or old shoes you don’t mind getting muddy. Bring a hat and a reusable water bottle. We will provide bug spray, sun block, gloves, and all tools you will need.
You’ll work hard, share some laughs, and enjoy some snacks. What better way to spend a Friday morning? See you there!
