NATIONAL PUBLIC LANDS DAY - COMMUNITY VOLUNTEER PROJECT: EXOTIC PLANT PULL WITH PROJECT A.N.T.
Paynes Prairie Preserve State Park
Date: Saturday, September 27, 2014. 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon.
A rewarding volunteer opportunity open to everyone! Celebrate National Public Lands Day at Paynes Prairie Preserve State Park.
Join fellow Paynes Prairie fans and help restore native habitat by removing invasive exotic plants. This is a great opportunity to learn more about exotic plants, spend some time OFF the trail in a different area of Paynes Prairie, and contribute a helping hand. If you are a student or individual with an interest in acquiring volunteer hours, this is also a great way to earn a few hours. Meet Paynes Prairie’s 2014 Americorps members, and learn more about the Project A.N.T. program.
Meet at the Paynes Prairie Pavilions.
