Lewisville Lake Environmental Learning Area (LLELA) Saturday (VH)
First Saturday of the Month, 9:00 AM – 12:00 PM
Saturday Strike Force:
If you have been looking for a chance to volunteer at LLELA on the weekend, this is it.
Beginning February 4, 2023 and on the first Saturday of the month thereafter, volunteers can participate in the once a month Saturday Strike Force focusing on removal of invasive species. Controlling invasive plants is as vital to LLELA’s restoration efforts as growing and planting native species.
First up will be removing Chinese privet along Stewart Creek. The “Plant of the Month” may vary. Spring could find the team pulling bastard cabbage on the dam or along the roadside or chasing down Brazilian vervain anywhere it comes up or possibly working with some of the senior volunteers to treat Johnson grass around the property or Japanese honeysuckle along the Blackjack Trail.
Angela Lewallen, Blackland Prairie Master Naturalist and member of the Lewisville Parks Board will coordinate the effort. All Master Naturalist chapters as well as other volunteers are welcome.
LLELA contact: To get involved email Angela at email@example.com
