Saturday May 26: Invasive species management

22 May

This month we will focus on decreasing the size of the cheatgrass and sweetclover populations on the dunes. They are pernicious, but with the help of volunteers, these species can pulled by hand, avoiding the need for herbicides. Join us this Saturday from 10am-noon. Also, be sure to check out the website to see photos from recent workdays and events at the nature area!

Rainbow Beach is located at 3111 E. 77th St. By foot, walk east from South Shore Dr. on 77th St. By car, enter from 79th St., go past the water filtration plant, and park in the first parking lot. Please meet at the entrance to the nature area, which is located at the southern end of the beach. Tools and equipment will be provided, but please bring water and dress appropriately for the weather. Contact Alison Anastasio at alison.anastasio@gmail.com for questions and to RSVP.
