About the Event

Join Lakes Region Conservation Corps member, Sam, for the fifth program of our 2020 Terrestrial Invasive Plant Removal Series focused on Autumn olive.

Every Sunday through August 9, 2020 there will be an opportunity to learn about a different invasive species found within the Squam Watershed. Each program will begin with a lesson about how to identify & remove the species of the day. Then it's time for you to help remove the species from the area! The goal is that afterwards, you will feel confident identifying and properly removing these plants from other areas in the watershed.

As always, this work is weather dependent. Should any changes to plans arise, we will provide updates. We encourage help from volunteers who love the outdoors, enjoy hands-on conservation work, and are excited to work with our LRCC AmeriCorps members!

Due to Covid-19 volunteer trail days are limited to four people so that appropriate social distancing can be observed between the LRCC members and the volunteers.

What to bring

The SLA will provide tools, safety equipment, and other resources. However, we encourage volunteers to bring their own, well labeled, tools if they want. Volunteers should bring appropriate clothing, water, sunscreen, and a snack. Please also bring a facemask to be worn while around larger groups of people, such as at trailheads.

Youth Instructions

Must be 18 or older.
