IWLA Minnesota Division
New Member Orientation- Noon
Due to Covid, we will not be having a potluck this year. Please bring a snack or picnic lunch.
Are you a new member that just joined in 2021? Did you join in recent years but never received an orientation? Join us for the clean up and stay for the orientation and tour at Noon- learn the "ins and outs" of the chapter, what to do and what NOT to do. Orientation and tour will last about 1 hour.
Found just over a mile from the Chapter, Tierney's Woods is a hidden gem of a park and is a Big Woods remnant- a rare habitat that needs protection. We count birds each year in this park as part of our Christmas Bird Count. Garlic mustard, a non-native, invasive plant is invading parts of the Woods- threatening native plants and the wildlife that depend on them. Join park volunteer, Lisa McEntire and help pull this bully plant and protect our Big Woods. Learn to identify garlic mustard and how to manage it, and learn about other plants in the Woods. Three sessions will be held, May 21, 22, and 29.
To help protect this resource, these events are limited to 4 people- registration is required. The event will be cancelled if actively raining at 12:30 pm- volunteers that sign up will be contacted.
What to Bring: Dress for the weather, gloves, sturdy shoes, bug spray, sunblock, snacks and water.
Please contact Lisa McEntire with any questions.
