Hogsback Forest Buffer Enhancement


Friday, May 26, 2017
9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
Meet at Lamb's Inn

Join us and help rare expand the Hogsback Forest Buffer! The forest buffer enhancement of this highly biodiverse old-growth forest began in 2014 with the removal of invasive species and planting of native species. Invasive species present in the area include Buckthorn, Honeysuckle, and Garden Escapes. As a follow-up treatment to the restoration work already conducted, volunteer days will be focused on pulling buckthorn seedlings and other invasive species.

Identification of invasive species training will be provided on site as well as instruction on proper removal techniques. This is a great opportunity for those looking to gain in field experience with ecological restoration and become more familiar with flora of southern Ontario.

Cost: This event is FREE

Each volunteer day will have a morning (9:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m) and afternoon (1:30 p.m.-4:30 p.m.) session. Volunteers are welcome to sign up for one or both sessions.
