Habitat Restoration – Sunday, May 7

We are looking forward to our next work day in Crooked Branch Ravine Park! There are a variety of things to do; remove plants using a weed wrench, free trees of ivy or remove vines from the ground. We welcome those who have done this before as well as those who may want to learn.

Why do we do this? Consider the box turtle. Box turtles live in natural areas with leaf littter. Non native, invasive plants are causing habitat destruction in our parks and the numbers of box turtles are dwindling. Would like to show your kids a box turtle in the woods or see one yourself? If so, please consider coming to help.


  • Sunday, May 7 from 2 – 4 p.m. or anytime in between.
  • Map to site
  • Please bring your own work gloves and small hand tools such as pruners, loppers, or folding hand saw. A flathead screwdriver can be helpful to pry vines away from trees. Limited tools and gloves will be available onsite.
  • We will be working in the woods so dress for the weather, wear sturdy shoes, and bring water and a snack if needed.
  • Please RSVP below if you plan to attend. This will help us plan for the work day and also let you know if there is a change.
