The Catskill Conservation Corps invites volunteers to help remove Japanese Knotweed from the vicinity of Russell Brook Falls on Saturday, May 16. The work site is an easy, short hike from the Russell Brook Trailhead.
Volunteers will be working with Catskill Conservation Corps (CCC) staff, Catskill Regional Invasive Species Partnership (CRISP) staff and others educated in invasive species to remove Japanese Knotweed from the area surrounding Russell Brook Falls.
Volunteers should be sure to wear hiking boots; dress appropriately for the outdoor conditions and our activities; pack a snack and bring plenty of water to stay hydrated; and bring work gloves. The public is welcome to join work trips of the Catskill Conservation Corps. No experience is necessary and tools and training will be provided on site before we get started.
Pre-registration is required for the event. You can register by calling 518-628-4243, by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or by completing the registration form below.
