Give nature a hand! LandPaths at the stunning, 400-acre Riddell Preserve for a day of stewardship, community-building, a bit of exercise and some fun! During this workday, we will hike approximately 1 mile to the only known patch of yellow star thistle and remove it. The Riddell Preserve is a rugged natural area with very few trails. Volunteers should come preapred for off-trail hiking with some steep sections and unsure footing. No experience necessary. LandPaths will provide neccessary tools, but feel free to bring your own if you have them. Helpful tools for this workday include hand pruners and reusable weed bags.
