Clayton Smith Woods - Centennial Volunteer Stewardship Workdays

Tags: Centennial Volunteers and Volunteers

Join the North Branch Restoration Project with the Centennial Volunteers to restore this oak woodland to its former beauty! This 76-acre site is new to restoration and will depend on the community of volunteers to remove invasive species, spread native seed, and much more. Large pin oaks are a unique feature of this preserve, which is also home to some beautiful spring ephemerals.

Wear long sleeves, long slacks or jeans, and sturdy shoes. Natural fiber clothing (wool or cotton) works best, especially when burning brush piles. Multiple layers on cool days allow you to shed a layer as the day warms. We provide gloves and the necessary tools.

Meeting Place:

6639 W Harts Rd. Entrance signs says Bunker Hill. Follow yellow volunteer signs to meeting place.
