You pick the day, any day- any time! Help the woods on your next visit to Warbler Ridge by taking this map along and visiting our problem woody invasive plant areas. Remove plants, have fun!

We are inviting volunteers to use this map and individually go out and tackle woody invasives such as honeysuckle, autumn olive, privet, and multi-flora rose in the focus areas at Warbler Ridge Conservation Area.
