Earth Day Work Party at Seminary Hill Natural Area This Saturday

By The Chronicle

Saturday from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. the Friends of the Seminary Hill Natural Area and Bill Wamsley, Lewis County noxious weed control specialist, will lead volunteers in an effort to prepare the trails for the upcoming season during an Earth Day work party.

There are many opportunities to help, each with varying degrees of difficulty and exertion. Trail bed maintenance, ivy pulling, blackberry cutting and litter removal are all examples of job that will be available.

Some tools and gloves are provided, or you may bring your own. A few wheelbarrows, buckets and shovels are needed for moving gravel and bark.

Refreshments will be provided. Experts will be on hand to answer any wildflower, wildlife or weed questions you may have.

Meet in the parking lot of the Natural Area, at the corner of East Locust Street and Barner Drive at 10 a.m.
