Parfrey's Glen Work Day



  • Instructor Wisconsin DNR and NRF

REI is proud to be a stewardship grant partner with Natural Resources Foundation of Wisconsin and happy to partner with them and the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources on restoration and cleanup at Parfrey's Glen, Wisconsin's oldest State Natural Area! Help us keep it beautiful and healthy as we remove invasive honeysuckle and brush. This is hard work, but it's important and makes a huge difference in the health of the local ecosystem. Moderate physical fitness required: Volunteers will be using loppers and other tools to remove and treat woody invasive plants as well as moving small trees and brush. No skills needed - you will be trained on-site. Volunteers should bring: Appropriate clothing for working outdoors (we recommend boots, long pants, and long sleeves that you don't mind getting dirty and beat up, work gloves and safety glasses or sunglasses (extras will be available if needed), water and snacks to keep your energy up, bug spray, loppers if you have them (we have a limited supply and it is always helpful to have extras). RSVP required - if you would like to sign up to help, please contact Jared Urban to let him know you be coming!
