Weed Warrior Wednesdays

Wednesdays May through September
10 a.m. to 1 p.m.
E-mail landsteward@NCLCtrust.org for more information

May through September, the NCLC stewardship crew hosts a weekly work day to tackle various projects on NCLC lands. Volunteers are welcome to join any or all Wednesdays. Typically the group meets up at Circle Creek Conservation Center and often works somewhere on that large property. Other days the group meets at or carpools to another property, depending on what the land steward determines is the priority for that day. W³ days often involve weed removal activities but may include other kinds of projects, such as seeding, native plant caretaking, trail building/maintenance, and site cleanups.


Sept. 13: Pull weeds by canoe (or kayak) in the Skipanon River, Warrenton

Sept. 20: Collect seeds of native coastal prairie plants, Warrenton

Sept. 27: End-of-season finale in the proposed Rainforest Reserve, Arch Cape

May 2018: The Warriors will kick off 2018 by busting Scotch broom with Eric on one or another of our properties.

June and July 2018: Most of our efforts these two months will be focused on pulling out invasive policeman’s helmet at Circle Creek (Seaside)with Melissa and Amy. Read more about policeman’s helmet.

Why join us? To assist the stewardship team (they can always use extra hands). To personally help care for NCLC’s conserved lands. To enjoy a day outside in hidden parts of the coastal landscape. And to meet new people or enjoy a day working alongside old friends.

Contact the NCLC land steward to get on the W³ email list. You’ll get an email each week (usually Monday) providing a quick rundown of what that week’s work will entail. In general, you’ll want to bring:

  • Water
  • A snack
  • Gloves and rubber boots (if you have them)
  • A hat and sunscreen

We have boots (if it happens to be wet) and gloves available if you need them, and we’ll provide tools for whatever we’ll be doing that day. You’re also welcome to bring your own tools if suitable for the task at hand. Contact the land steward with any questions.
