Event description

Description

We're calling for volunteers to help restore the habitat of Kingman and Heritage Islands. The islands are overrun by bush honeysuckle and Japanese knotweed, plants known to crowd out native plants, with almost no wildlife value. You will learn how to identify invasive plants, and how to treat them, and at the end the event there will be a walk around the islands to show some already restored habitats, look for birds, and view the amazing wild rice marsh.

What: Invasive plant clearing on Kingman Island to help improve wildlife habitat.
When: November 10th. 9:30am-12:00pm.
Where: Meet at the entrance off Benning Rd (https://goo.gl/maps/7UddzWkmYsz). The closest Metro is Stadium Armory. This site is easily accessible by bike. If driving, you can park at the golf course across the street, or along the path on Kingman Island.
What to bring: Water, sunscreen, long pants, and shirt. There is very little poison ivy on the Island, but if you're sensitive, bring ivy treatment. Personal gloves and tools are optional but there are some you can borrow at the site.
