Happy New Year!
Our winter event is scheduled.
And spring 2019 events are to be announced by Feb 15.
Public events are generally larger events and are open to the general public, meaning that there could be a wide range of ages and audiences that a supervisor could work with – from corporate groups, to schools, to families, to individuals. Required: completion of the Volunteer Supervisor Training for Adult and Family Programs. Learn More >
Private events vary in size and are open to one audience – typically corporate employees. Often, sites used for private groups are different from those chosen for public events in the same season, so they can be a great opportunity to visit new Greening sites. Required: completion of the Volunteer Supervisor Training for Adult and Family Programs. Learn More >
Field Learning for Teens events are geared toward getting teenage students outside to get their hands dirty and learn about the importance of natural spaces. Required: completion of the Volunteer Supervisor Training for School Programs. Learn More >
Open Public Events
Carlos Avery WMA, Wyoming
Saturday, February 9, 11:00am to 2:00pm (supervisors arrive at 10:00am!)
Supervisors Needed: 8 (of 8)
Volunteers at this exciting event will haul, limb, and stack buckthorn brush into burn piles. The piles will be lit and volunteers will feed and maintain the fire under direction of Volunteer Supervisors. This is a great method to remove cut buckthorn brush from the landscape AND kill any attached seed, which will help the slow buckthorn populations in future years. Supervisors will orchestrate the pace and quality of fire maintenance, make sure volunteers are working safely, keep the fire going, and make sure everyone can have fun! Burning experience is not required for Supervisors attending this event, but it is beneficial.
Partners & Funders: Minnesota Department of Natural Resources, Minnesota Environment Natural Resources Trust Fund, and Connexus Energy.
