The Woodlands Township Environmental Services Department wants you to volunteer!
Non-native, invasive plants crowd out native vegetation, degrade soil health and push out critical food sources that wildlife depend on. Volunteers are needed to work on scheduled days at specific sites around town to remove invasive species such as air potato vine, Chinese privet and Japanese climbing fern.
Since the efforts began in February 2019, more than 80 volunteers have been trained on identification and proper removal of invasive plants. A total of 350 volunteer hours helped remove 2,600 gallons of invasive species from pathways in the Township.
If you are ready to join the Invasive Task Force, attend the next volunteer training day on Saturday, February 15, 2020. Class is held from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at H.A.R.C. and a light lunch is included.
