Stewardship Workday at Barton Nature Area

Barton's intact sedge meadows were saved from the plow by virtue of their waterlogged soils, or by a farmer who delighted in their floral show. Prairie pockets along the adjacent railroad tracks provide a source of seed for areas cleared of invasive non-native shrubs. Rare orchids and diminutive sedges persist under heavy competition from buckthorn and autumn olive. The woodcock relies on remnants of open fields to perform its moonlit dance. Help us care for the treasures offered by Barton Nature Area, where we will be pulling invasive weeds like spotted knapweed. Pre-registration through VolunteerHub is required as space is limited. Please stay home if you are not feeling well. Please wear long pants, closed-toed shoes, and gardening gloves. All minors should be accompanied by a guardian. Tools and know-how provided. Meeting location will be provided at registration. Register here. (http://tinyurl.com/Barton081521)
