ARMN welcomes volunteers to help us restore native habitat and stamp out invasive non-native plants in natural areas of our local parks.
This work is vitally important to protecting the region’s remaining pockets of biodiversity. In many natural areas, plants that have co-evolved with birds and other local wildlife over thousands of years are being overwhelmed by fast-growing introduced species that strangle trees and eliminate food sources.
As a volunteer, you will:
- Work outdoors in woodlands, meadows, wetlands and other natural spaces
- Learn about invasives and native flora and fauna from Master Naturalists leading the activity
- Help remove non-native invasive plants and replace them with native plants that will support native wildlife
- Experience the satisfaction of making a lasting difference in the health of our environment
ARMN is seeking volunteers for recurring habitat restoration work at more than a dozen parks in the region. Links below will take you directly to sign-up forms with more information on what to expect, bring, and wear. All events are also posted on the calendar at the bottom of the page. Questions?
