TCC is hosting honeysuckle and other invasive plant clearings. Bush honeysuckle is an invasive plant that has the ability to greatly alter the Missouri ecosystem in harmful ways. Honeysuckle removal does not require any prior experience, and removing honeysuckle or other harmful invasive species allows native plants to thrive. We thank you in advance for your help with this big task!
Invasive clearings will take place 11/6, 11/13, and 11/20. We will be leaving campus at 12pm (from the S40 clocktower) and returning at 4pm (working from ~12:30 – 3:30 pm).
Gloves, loppers and/or pruners, and any other materials required for the actual honeysuckle clearing will be provided for these events. Honeysuckle clearing can be strenuous at times, so be aware of the weather on the days you are volunteering. Bring lots of water, a hat, and sunscreen. Wear long pants and shoes with ankle support (there are poison ivy, ticks, and uneven ground in the areas we will be working in at Tyson Research Center).
Snacks and drinks will be provided for breaks!
