Volunteers clear French Broom on Earth Day.

Earth Day is the perfect opportunity to help protect the environment. And there’s no better way to do that than to get outside and help restore native habitats.

Sempervirens Fund is hosting a volunteer restoration event at the soon-to-be-opened Robert C. Kirkwood Entrance of Castle Rock State Park. Volunteers will conduct vital invasive species removal to help restore the native grassland and woodland habitats that define this area, as well as maintain the black oak restoration areas installed by dedicated volunteers like you in 2018.  

Invasive species compete for space, light, water, and nutrients with native species, and can completely alter natural habitats and communities. In addition to pushing out native plants and vegetation, in many cases they present fire risks and also reduce available food sources for native insects, birds, and mammals. Your help is critical in helping eliminate these non-native invaders and revitalize the landscape.

Join Sempervirens Fund on Saturday, April 20 from 10:00 a.m.-3:00 p.m. to take part in this important work and enjoy a sneak peek of the amazing new facilities and landscape at this treasured hiking and rock-climbing destination.  

Activities: Participants will pull invasive weeds by hand or using basic hand tools. Work will be moderately strenuous and may take place on sloped and uneven terrain. All tools, gloves, and gear will be provided by Sempervirens Fund, but if you have your own equipment we suggest bringing it along. We recommend wearing long-sleeved shirts, pants, and durable hiking shoes. Snacks and beverages will be provided, but a bag lunch is recommended.
