This beautiful 17-acre site hosts a rare oak woodland habitat with 150-year old white oaks. Invasive species, especially ivy, have taken over the forest and we need your help! We will be removing ivy selectively off of native trees and shrubs to prepare the site for contractor work. We may also remove other invasive species and plant some native plants! Pulling ivy requires volunteers to be able to bend over or kneel, but we can arrange alternate projects for those with different abilities or mobility issues.

Please stop by, check out the site, and lend a hand as we enhance this unique oak woodland!
