About the Event

College Woods and the UNH Office of Woodlands & Natural Areas need you! This special forest on the UNH campus is being overrun with glossy buckthorn, a non-native invasive shrub that crowds out native plants. We’ll be hand-pulling buckthorn to help improve the health of College Woods. Registration mandatory due to maximum group size.

COVID19 Safety

Wondering how to make sure you keep yourself and others safe during this time? Nature Groupie has created a quick, free training to help you stay healthy.

What to bring

Come prepared with a water bottle, long sleeve shirt and pants and sturdy shoes. Masks required - we'll provide gloves.

Youth Instructions

Youth volunteers welcome accompanied by parent.
