What do volunteers do? As stewards of the land, we and our beloved volunteers do many things to help heal this land. We remove invasive plants to make room for a variety of native ones, which improves ecological health. We do this with hands, handsaws, root wrenches and chainsaws. We haul the cuttings into piles by the trails. We run the brush cuttings through a wood chipper to make mulch. We use the mulch on our trails – a form of recycling! We manage existing trails and “build” new ones. We grow native plants from seed in the greenhouse, and plant them in the Sanctuary. Sometimes we just pick up trash. When you come, we could be doing any or all of these things depending on who shows up, what their interests are, and what needs to be done in the Sanctuary that day. We also enjoy time together in nature. We learn something new about ecological restoration, the natural and cultural heritage of the Sanctuary, and how we can all be better stewards of the Earth.
We look forward to welcoming you in person to the Headwaters!
