Event Series Event Series: First Saturday LLELA Workday

First Saturday LLELA Workday

June 3, 2023 @ 9:00 am - 2:00 pm

If you have been looking for a chance to help out at LLELA on the weekend, this is it.

The first Saturday of each month, Angela Lewallen BPTMN and member of the Lewisville Parks Board, will lead an invasive species removal workday from 9 AM to 12PM.  Haley Daniels, UNT MS candidate in biology, who has coordinated UNT student invasives workdays will also participate.

First up will be removing Chinese privet along the new Stewart Creek Trail in anticipation of it being opened to the public in the future. The “Plant of the Month” may vary. Spring could find the team pulling bastard cabbage on the dam or along the roadside or chasing down Brazilian vervain anywhere it comes up or possibly working with some of the senior volunteers to treat Johnson grass around the property or Japanese honeysuckle along the Blackjack Trail.

Controlling invasives is as vital to LLELA’s restoration efforts as growing and planting native species.

Meet at the LLELA office complex. Tell the gate attendant you are at LLELA to volunteer. Parking for the offices, classrooms, visitor center and nursery complex is located on the right-hand gravel drive just past the gate house.
