JOIN OUR HABITAT HEROES TEAM
4/9, 4/16, 5/21 and 5/28 from 9AM-NOON!
Our 2021 Habitat Heroes Team logged ~ 400 volunteer hours clearing honeysuckle and porcelain berry vines from the Barred Owl trail and the eastern side of the Lake. These hours represent a value close of over $10,000 in invasive species removal for Cincinnati Parks. The team is dedicated to education and sweat-effort in improving the ecology of Burnet Woods through removal of invasive plants that choke out our native trees and wildflowers.
