Thorndyke Park - Thorndyke Park / Forest …08/27/2022

Activities

While the exact tasks can vary, our projects focus on improving the forests and parks in our local cities. Healthy and thriving forests are vital to our community because they absorb and filter rain water, produce clean oxygen, provide living spaces for wildlife, and create a place for people to connect with the outdoors.

In order to help create healthy forests, the work can include:
• Removing aggressive weeds (like English Ivy or Himalayan Blackberry)
• Maintaining areas where these weeds have been removed

Invasive plant Clean-up (rain or shine)

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 snack if you like
