Voas Stewardship Day


9 a.m. - 12 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 2 at Voas Nature Area.


Have you ever asked yourself if there was a good way you could help wildlife? For the last 4 summers DCCB has invited 14 volunteers between the ages of 10 and 14 years of age to help clear an oak-savanna area that has been overgrown. Last year we invited the public to help continue to clear the understory at this site. It was a huge success. We have had many adults who missed the event ask if we would be doing this again. The answer is yes! Summer is hot with mosquitos and poison ivy. Fall is crisp with no bugs or foliage. We will be using hand saws and loppers to clear honeysuckle, dogwood and small trees. Come help us liberate these smothered “wolf” oaks. We will have you home before the kickoff of your favorite team. Preregistration is required for this free program, 515-465-3577.
