Volunteers will help remove non-native weeds from the Land Trust's Willow Springs Preserve. This is a great opportunity to visit a Land Trust protected property that is not open to the public! Weed a little, picnic a little, and enjoy the longest day of the year in a beautiful setting. Bring your own picnic and the Land Trust will provide the drinks and dessert.

What to bring: Gloves, snacks, water, your favorite picnic blanket, and your dinner! 

Level of Difficulty: Weed Warrior work parties are rated as moderately difficult. They include hiking off-trail on uneven terrain, stooping, kneeling, and working in all weather conditions.


Weed Warriors is a volunteer group that meets three times a month to remove invasive weeds from the Land Trust protected lands. Non-native vegetation is a major threat to functioning natural systems Pulling them by hand can help us control these weeds on our protected lands without the use of chemicals. For questions, please contact our Weed Warrior leaders Pat and Ginny.
