Habitat Restoration Team
Saturdays – 2pm – 4pm
IF YOU WISH TO SCHEDULE A GROUP OF 3 OR MORE, PLEASE CONTACT [email protected]. We may be able to create a custom session date for you!
AGE RESTRICTIONS: Volunteers must be ages 13 + and anyone under the age of 18 MUST have a parent present at all times.
We will remove invasive plants from the park and in warmer weather, also plant natives and maintain restored habitat – great opportunities for high school students for community service and volunteers who like to work outdoors.
Clothing: Long pants protect your legs! Please also wear toe-closed shoes, bring sunscreen, a hat, water bottle and insect repellent if desired –please bring your own gloves and tools if you have them – we do have some extras but not many. Avoid knit clothing that could catch on thorny shrubs.
We usually meet at the back of the Sherwood House, 2002 Cromwell Bridge Rd, Baltimore, MD 21234. However, we do alternate between two locations close to each other, the Sherwood House and Willow Grove Farm.
If you are a new volunteer, please send an e-mail to [email protected] to find out the location – as of Feb. 1 we will be working at Willow Grove Farm for a couple of months. If you are already on the contact list, you will receive an e-mail about the location, weather, etc., before the session.
Different work sites are announced on the e-mail preceding the session – please send your e-mail to get on the mailing list – thanks!
