Weed Warrior Wednesdays

Every Wednesday, spring through September
10 a.m. to 1 p.m.

E-mail Land Steward Eric Owen for more information or to be notified when W³ resumes in 2020 (delayed due to coronavirus precautions)

The NCLC stewardship crew seasonally hosts a weekly work day to tackle various projects on NCLC lands. Volunteers are welcome to join any or all Wednesdays.  The group meets wherever work needs to be done, usually in the Seaside-Warrenton area. In June and July the group typically meets up at Circle Creek Conservation Center to focus on removal of policeman’s helmet (an invasive plant that blooms in summer). W³ days focus on whatever the land steward determines is that week’s priority. Often it involves weed removal activities but may include other kinds of projects, such as seeding, planting and plant maintenance, native plant caretaking, trail building/maintenance, and site cleanups.

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 or to get on his email notification list.
