Lupine Meadows Volunteer Work Party, Saturday, October 9th @ 9 am
October 9 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
Join Greenbelt staff and fellow volunteers at Lupine Meadows to remove invasive hawthorn from a sensitive prairie habitat.
Controlling invasive species in this area is especially important due to the presence of Kincaid’s lupine, which is listed as a threatened species in Oregon and which in turn provides habitat for Fender’s blue butterflies.
Time: 9am-12pm; gates open by 8:40
Activity level & accessibility: There are no restroom facilities or indoor rest areas at this site. We will be traveling on uneven ground including obstacles such as small shrubs and large rocks. Though it is only a short walk from the parking area to the project site, in order to complete our work volunteers will need to walk back and forth on hilly, uneven terrain. This work area is exposed to the weather, rain or shine. Please reach out to us if you have questions about the activity level and accessibility of this project.
What you should bring: We ask that volunteers bring their own water bottles and any snacks you might need, and that everyone wear long pants and closed-toe and closed-heel shoes for safety purposes. Shoes with some ankle support are recommended but not required. Please dress for the weather!
We will provide: All tools, personal protective equipment (like gloves), and training; water; first aid supplies; hand sanitizer; and any other bits and bobs we’ll need for this project.
