Volunteer Event at the Audubon Preserve

Join RiversEdge West and the Grand Valley Audubon Society for a volunteer event on October 22nd from 8 am - 10 am! Volunteers will be hand-pulling invasive tamarisk seedlings before they blanket the Audubon's wetland and decrease plant diversity in the area. After the tamarisk is removed, we'll collect native seeds and redistribute them over the newly cleared area to encourage the growth of native vegetation that is critical to healthy bird and wildlife habitat.
