‘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.

 

Let’s Pull Together! **FILLED**

Calling all volunteers to pull together! Whether you call them weeds, non-native plants, or invasive species, one thing holds true- plants like English ivy and Armenian blackberry (though yummy!) can harm native plants and impact our trails. This year, join Greenbelt Land Trust as we remove weeds from Forest Dell Park.

Site Information:

Greenbelt protected Forest Dell as an urban park in 1997. Today it is managed by the City of Corvallis for trails and open space. Come pitch in to help reduce the spread of invasive plants. By pulling together, we can protect native habitats and the wildlife that depend on them.

Difficulty level: moderate. Volunteers will be pulling invasive plants including holly and spurge laurel. All youth under 18 must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian.

Any questions? Please email GLT’s Stewardship & Volunteer Specialist, Elizabeth.

*This event is co-hosted by Greenbelt Land Trust, City of Corvallis, Benton Soil and Water Conservation District, Corvallis Sustainability Coalition Water Action Team, and Marys River Watershed Council. Let’s Pull Together is organized by the Benton County Cooperative Weed Management Area (CWMA) and SOLVE as part of Oregon’s Invasive Weed Awareness Week.

 

MLK Day of Service
