Saturday, June 29th – Adam K’s Eagle Project needs everyone’s help – scouts and adults! Adam needs help removing invasive species of plants from the Arboretum; mainly buckthorn, wild garlic mustard, multiflora rose, and honeysuckle. The jobs to be done are pullers, cutters, haulers and sawers. All ages can help, however in order to be a cutter or sawer you must have your Totin Chit and must be at least 12 years of age. Please bring a water bottle, and wear a long sleeved shirt, long pants, closed toed shoes, a wide brimmed hat and rain gear (if needed). Due to the possibility of poison ivy, gloves and safety glasses are needed so please let Adam know if you will need these so he can acquire them for you.
