Invasives Strike Force -- Trail Crew
Invasives Strike Force Trail Crew
The Trail Conference's Invasives Strike Force Trail Crew is made up of volunteers dedicated to eradicating invasive plants along hiking trails in the region. Volunteers do not have to become members of the Trail Conference to participate in the trail crew, however membership is encouraged so that you can enjoy benefits such as discounts on Trail Conference publications and with our retail partners.
Anyone can participate in this Trail Crew -prior attendance at a training workshop is not required and you do not need to know how to identify the plants. We provide on-the-job training.
If you would like to volunteer at an Invasives Strike Force Trail Crew workday, please email [email protected] for detailed information including meeting place and directions.
For all trips, bring work gloves, water and lunch. We provide the tools. Trips will usually be cancelled if it is raining.
