Volunteer Invasives Removal Day at Camden Hills State Park

– September 5th half or full day, whatever you can contribute

– Meet at Camden Hills State Park in the Overflow Parking lot south of the Welcome Booth at 8:15 AM

– Please bring your own lunch and water, trimming tools like garden shears, loppers or even hand saws, and work gloves

– Wear hiking shoes as there will be a mile long hike to and from site with work on a high-brush mountainside (Cameron Mountain), and dress for the weather, Cameron Mountain is exposed to sun and wind

We will be mechanically removing the invasive species, Glossy Buckthorn, which has become prevalent on Cameron Mountain. This will require hiking up a mid-grade hiking trail for one mile to and from the treatment site. There are no facilities once we are on the work site, plan accordingly. Due to COVID-19, please bring a mask to wear (or we will have some available), and hand sanitizer. We will be maintaining safe physical distance throughout the day as much as possible. In order to help with safe physical distancing, we will have volunteers drive their vehicles up our Multi-Use trail and park as close to the work site as possible. We hope to see you Saturday September 5th to work on a beautiful mountain top! Thank you for your help.
