About the event
This is your opportunity to support a cherished remnant prairie in the heart of Lawrence! We will be focused on the removal of woody species, primarily smooth sumac (Rhus glabra) . While sumac is native, it can overtake a prairie in the absence of the intermittent burns which historically swept the prairie and maintained the balance of our ecosystems.
No experience needed - our team will provide education, tools, and gloves. Please come prepared to work outside, including wearing long pants and closed-toed shoes. Also bring your own water bottle, snacks, bug spray, sun block, and hat. There is a bathroom on site. No RSVP required.
This series of workdays are in collaboration with Lawrence Parks and Recreation.
