Family Walk: Say Cheese, Go Wild!

 

 

 

 

How do biologists study wildlife from afar yet get so up-close? Get a unique hands-on look into how we “capture” wildlife using remote trail cameras. Go for a guided walk, put cameras along the trail, see what critters we film, and take a photo home with you. Join Greenbelt Land Trust and Greenbelt Volunteer Naturalist and OSU biologist, Jonny Armstrong, for this free, kid-friendly event at the Bald Hill Farm conservation area. Light snacks provided. Space is limited, so RSVP today!

*This event is brought to you by Greenbelt Land Trust and Hike it Baby.

‘Stop Shiny Geranium’ Volunteer Day **RESCHEDULED**

*This event has been rescheduled. More information will be posted soon. Please check back for updates.

Join a fun group of GLT volunteers and staff as we continue the quest to remove shiny geranium, a highly invasive plant, from key oak habitat restoration sites at Bald Hill Farm and Mulkey Ridge. We’ll be working with hand tools to prevent this plant from spreading into sensitive habitats. This will be a great opportunity to learn more about plant identification and the clever strategies invasive plants use to outcompete them.

Recommended for ages 12 and up. Minors need to be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian. This volunteer opportunity involves walking approximately 2 miles on uneven surfaces, bending, kneeling, and being in areas where poison oak may be present.

If you have any questions, please email rebecca@greenbeltlandtrust.org.

 

Mulkey Ridge Forest Walk

This summer Greenbelt land Trust is embarking on a 2-year Woodlands Stewardship Project on Bald Hill Farm’s Mulkey Ridge. This Project aims to prevent the loss of existing oak woodland and savanna, increase the extent of oak woodland and savanna, remove invasive species, increase habitat quality and diversity, release viable legacy oaks, and reduce fire risk. You are invited to join Greenbelt Staff and forestry consultants and professionals on a Forest Walk prior to the start of the implementation of the Woodlands Stewardship Project to learn more about this new project!

Spaces limited for this free event: To RSVP, email elizabeth@greenbeltlandtrust.org.
