Cutting & Treating

Sunday, October 8

Location: Goodhue County

This work day will take place near the City of Red Wing and we’ll be using hand tools to cut buckthorn and honeysuckle, then treating the cut stems with herbicide. For those who don’t want to work with herbicides, there may be opportunities to find and flag desirable native plants that will be avoided during the cutting/treating, and opportunities to scout for invasive plants in a nearby location.If you have hand pruners or loppers you can bring, please do so, but there will be some available for those who don’t have any. Other things to bring include work gloves, a hat to keep the sun off your face, sunscreen, insect repellent, plenty of hydrating liquids, and snacks to keep you energized.If you’re interested in participating, please email your RSVP to Gita Ghei and she’ll give you directions to the site. If there’s a last-minute change in plans because of weather, only the people who sent their RSVP to Gita will be notified. You can also send Gita any questions you have about the work day or about getting to the parking place she’ll be waiting to meet us at.

The event is finished.
