Pesky Plant Pulling at Shaker Lakes

HandsOn Volunteers will help maintain 20 acres of the Nature Center at Shaker Lakes marsh, forest, and streams through invasive plant removal. Modifications to the project may be made to accommodate volunteers with limited mobility.

The Nature Center at Shaker Lakes conserves a natural area, connects people with nature and inspires environmental stewardship through programming including camps for children, educational events, and environmental advocacy.

Things to remember: This is an outdoor project. Please dress in clothes you do not mind getting dirty and in comfortable closed toe shoes (sneakers). Long pants are recommended.   If you wish to bring personal gardening gloves, feel free but they are not required for the work. 

Age Limits: This project is appropriate for volunteers age 8 and up. Volunteers under the age of 16 must volunteer alongside a parent or guardian. All volunteers under 18 must bring a youth waiver form signed by their parent or guardian.

If you would like to bring a non-oriented volunteer (youth volunteers under the age of 16 or a friend/family member) please email the Opportunity Leader to request permission and reserve a guest spot.
