Lake Ida Parcel Volunteer Day 2!

Wednesday, March 7, 2018

Back at it again! IRC will be holding our second Lake Ida Parcel volunteer day at the end of this month, on March 31st at 9:00am-12:00pm. Volunteers will help IRC to continue to restore this important greenspace by removing invasive plant species and picking up trash and debris. We will also be prepping the site for planting natives at upcoming events by raking up dense leaf litter dropped by invasive plants. Please remember to wear long pants and closed shoes!

Volunteers of all ages are welcome! We will meet at the Lake Ida Boat Ramp before shuttling participants to the site. All volunteers receive a free t-shirt! We will also have waters and light refreshments for the volunteers. Come join us!
