If you love being outdoors, and want to make a difference in nature, the perfect opportunity is coming up on Saturday, October 27 at 9am.
Friends of Alum Creek and Tributaries (FACT) is looking for volunteers to help remove invasive honeysuckle bushes, plant native trees, and clean-up trash from within Westerville’s Boyer Nature Preserve on Saturday, October 27 starting at 9 AM at 452 E. Park Street, Westerville, the group said in a social media post.
You’ll be working in urban wetlands — a rare natural habitat for a large variety of wildlife species such as frogs, turtles, snakes, fish, birds, and unusual aquatic plants and diverse insects. And you’ll be part of national Make a Difference Day.
Meet at park entrance located at the corner of Park Street & Orchard Lane. Please wear outdoor work clothes (long pants) and sturdy shoes or work boots. Bring shovels, loppers, bow saws if you have them. Various tools, gloves, trash bags, beverages and some snacks will be provided to volunteers.
The Sierra Club Central Ohio Group, MAD Scientist & Associates LLC, and Westerville Parks and Recreations are also supporting this group service project, the post on the group’s page said.
