About the Event
Attend these training sessions to get certified in invasive vine removal at Leopold's Preserve. Certified volunteers can come to the Preserve any time, on their own schedule, and independently work to remove invasive vines. We require that all independent volunteers attend a training session to learn more about invasive vine identification and removal techniques. 2023 trainings will be offered on the following dates, from 1:30 - 2:30 PM:
- March 11
- April 22
- August 19
- October 14
- If these dates do not work for you, please reach out and we can coordinate an individual training session.
All volunteers must dress appropriately (long sleeves, close-toed shoes) and bring their own pair of work gloves. You will also need a pair of loppers or garden shears. We will have tools to share during the training session, but you will need to bring your own tools if you want to volunteer independently after you become certified. Please contact us if you have any questions or concerns!
