Hartman Community Park - COVID SAFE: Hartman Blackberry …05/29/2021

This event is full (registration closed)


Time to roll up our sleeves, tighten our masks, and get back into the forest! Join a small crew of MAX 5 VOLUNTEERS as we make sure new tree planting saplings have lots of room to grow, free of blackberries. Make sure all volunteers (including children) are registered in the system, and do not bring others if they are unregistered. Due to safety measures we are not able to exceed our outdoor event size limits. Come dressed for the weather (rain or shine) in clothes you don’t mind getting dirty. Wear sturdy closed-toe shoes (rubber boots, hiking shoes or boots), long sleeves, long pants, warm layers and raincoat (blackberries have thorns).

Open to the public

All ages OK

5 out of 5 volunteers registered.
