Join our Restoration Volunteers!
Dress to work outside
layers of clothes that can get dirty. We strongly recommend blue jeans,
sturdy boots, and three layers on top. We’ve learned that fleece jackets are
just a magnet for sticky seeds and are best left in the car. We’ve also
learned that if we’re cold we’re miserable, so we always recommend an extra
layer of warmth – better to have it and not need it than the other way
We meet 9 a.m. to noon on the 2nd Saturday of each month and we alternate between two sites.
