Volunteer Stewardship Day

Wednesday, April 25, 2018 10:00 AM

This Earth Month, join Rockefeller Preserve's Environmental Stewardship Team! Each month, work with the Rockefeller Preserve Environmental Stewardship Team on different projects including digging up invasive vines and shrubs, and planting and caring for native wildflowers and trees. Make a visible and long-term difference in your community and learn what you're doing every step of the way! No experience is necessary.

On April 25th, stewards will be digging up and removing lesser celandine. Lesser celandine is a non-native invasive species that will quickly take over a forest understory if left unmanaged. It grows throughout the northeast in wetland areas and is often found in urban and semi-urban areas. Lesser celandine emerges earlier than most native plants, and may prevent the development and reproduction of other spring ephemerals, particularly smaller species like spring beauties, trilliums, and bloodroot. Meet at the Rockefeller State Park Preserve courtyard.
