Volunteering: Invasive Removal @ Douglas-Hart Nature Center – Mattoon, IL

Mondays, July 11, 2022 – August 29, 2022 at 9 AM – 12 PM –

Our invasive removal team is a key part of what we do. They come out during our warmer months to remove invasive plants across the property.
Invasive plants are plants introduced to the area that were not originally growing as the ecosystem evolved. These new plants typically do not have any pests to keep them in check and benefit the natural wildlife less than native plants.
By removing these plants we create more space for native plants, benefiting the ecosystem as a whole.

An RSVP is required, in case of bad weather and so we can prepare for the expected amount of people. To sign up, please email [email protected]
