Saturday volunteer work day is CANCELLED DUE TO WEATHER On Saturday, January 23, we need volunteers to help remove Invasive English Ivy at Indian River Park. Our goal for the day will be to remove English Ivy from the woods around the trailhead parking area. Please wear closed-toe shoes, a hat and bring work gloves; we recommend long pants and long sleeved shirts. Bring pruning clippers, loppers, screwdrivers (which are amazingly useful in prying ivy off tree trunks) and/or pruning saws if you have them. We'll have water and snacks available. Participants under 18 years of age must have adult supervision.
