Call for Volunteers: Weed Pulling Wednesday at Visitor Center

24 Jun 2019 12:15 PM | Anonymous member (Administrator)

Call for Volunteers: Weed Pulling Wednesday at Hobbs State Park Visitor Center with the Volunteer Coordinator!
Time: 8:30—11:30 a.m.
All areas around the visitor center and along the entrance-way are over-populated with an invasive species, Sericea lespedeza, which is about to start producing flowers and seeds….yikes! Gotta pull them now!!

Additionally, our Red Bud trees have been quiet successful. There are entirely too many of these little trees growing to close to the visitor center. Many have been pulled or cut from the tops, so have pretty deep roots. If you’re up for a challenge, bring some good tools, sunscreen, insect repellent and lots of water. I can also see about bringing tools over from our maintenance complex, if given advance notice of what you need.

Please RSVP for any of the following dates:
June 26th
July 3rd
July 10th
July 17th
July 24th
