There is work to be done to reclaim Thorndyke forest in Thorndyke Park. Invasive plants have taken over, and volunteers are needed to help defend this beautiful natural area. Join neighbors and friends to help out and learn about how we plan on bringing this forest back to a natural environment.

What to Bring

We provide all the tools, gloves, and other restoration supplies, but if you have a favorite pair of clippers and gloves, feel free to bring those. Please dress in layers and consider the weather, sturdy shoes or boots, long pants & long sleeved shirts will protect you from plant scratches. Bring raingear for rainy weather & sunscreen for sun. Also, bring a filled water bottle and your needed snacks. There are no restrooms at this Small Park, but Starbucks in just a few blocks away. We will teach you everything you need to know about tool use, safety, forest health, and the importance of the work you will be doing. No experience necessary, just come ready to learn something new! Be sure to sign in at registration when you arrive.
If you like you may bring a sack lunch and snacks (to refuel) and full water bottle
The event will happen rain or shine!
Come dressed for the weather (rain or shine) in clothes you don’t mind getting dirty. Wear sturdy closed-toe shoes (rubber boots, hiking shoes or boots), long sleeves, long pants, warm layers and rain jacket. We'll have tools and gloves for you to use
