Black garbage bags and work gloves will be provided. We will enjoy a picnic lunch at noon.

We will also be taking time to talk about the new “South Shore Stewardship Team” which is set to launch this year. This volunteer team will help steward to the protected lands on the south shore and work together to help restore and enhance the many special and rare habitats found throughout the area.
