Cancelled – Family Volunteer Day in Honor of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr
Monday, January 17 @ 9:30 am - 12:30 pm
Due to the upcoming snow forecast, this event has been cancelled.
Join the Potomac Valley Audubon Society for a morning of volunteer service to Celebrate Martin Luther King Jr. Day at Cool Spring Nature Preserve in Charles Town. We welcome your family to visit our nature preserve and learn about how we maintain our trails and habitat to serve both wildlife and human visitors. We’ll teach you how to identify non-native invasive plants, before we head out and cut them from the trees along the trails. We will have a campfire and hot chocolate available for volunteers to warm up throughout the event and will offer youth activities for younger children.
Clippers, pruners and work gloves will be available, but participants are welcome to bring along their own clippers and gloves.
