After an initial training, volunteers work independently, or in groups to maintain an invasive-free buffer zone on either side of the park’s trails. Volunteers typically work 2 to 3 hours a week and crews are found throughout the park year round.Individuals and groups are invited to participate. All ages and abilities are welcomed. Children under 16 years of age must be accompanied by an adult. Newcomers are always welcomed.
