What We Do

Current Land Stewardship Schedule

Week of June 25 - June 30

Don't miss our Urban Ecology Center Forester, Caitlin's Summer Tree Identification classes, this Thursday 6/28 from 5-7pm at our Riverside Park branch! This course is a 9-week series, but feel free to come to any or all of them to learn the details of how to identify the beautiful trees around you! This week, "The Oaks". 



Also, this week 2 NEW programs! Spring Searching: Bird and Plant ID - Early Summer at Menomonee Valley (8am, Tuesday 6/26) AND Weekly Botany Walk at Riverside (9:30am, Wednesday 6/27; Note: this will not occur on July 4th)



 ROOT Times:

*Please, arrive dressed for the weather in clothes and shoes you don't mind getting dirty. What to expect this week:

Menomonee Valley ROOT: It's that thistle time of year. Come help us improve our habitat restoration areas by removing invasive thistle! Planting this week, as well, to increase biodiversity.

Wednesdays 9-11am
Thursdays 9-11am

Washington Park ROOT: Help improve the biodiversity in our park by removing invasive thistle! Invasive thistle reduces the biodiversity of our habitat restoration areas. 

Wednesdays 9-11am
Thursdays 3:30-5:30pm

Riverside Park ROOT: Thistle, thistle. We've gotten a great start, but a keystone to successful habitat restoration is keeping those nasty invasives under control. Let's keep our nice areas nice! Transplanting native seedlings if it's raining. 

Tuesdays 9-11am; Tuesdays 2-4pm
Fridays 2-4pm
1st Saturday of each month 9:30-11am
