Stewardship Workday at Lakewood Nature Area

Among the many animals and plants that have been spotted at Lakewood is the Cooper’s Hawk, an agile woodland raptor. Cooper’s Hawks hunt for their food by flying fast along the ground and then popping up over an obstruction to surprise their prey on the other side. They have even been known to pursue prey on foot! Lakewood has a lot of food to offer these fascinating birds, so join us to remove invasive exotic shrubs that threaten the habitat depended-upon by Cooper’s Hawks and other native species. Meet us at the park entrance on Sunnywood Dr. (map).

Pre-registration through VolunteerHub is encouraged; please stay home if you are feeling ill. NAP continues to monitor recommendations from health officials, volunteers registered for events will be notified in advance of any changes to the workday. Please wear long pants and closed-toed shoes and bring a water bottle and leather gloves. All minors should be accompanied by a guardian. Tools and know-how provided. Register here.
