Weekend of Volunteering

The first full weekend in November was a busy one for TLC.  We ended our PA Master Naturalist Training for the Fall of 2013.  Congratulations to everyone who completed the PA Master Naturalist program.  Here is our group on the last day of class--stay tuned for more on the final field trip!

The Unionville Presbyterian Youth Group came out on Saturday afternoon for a volunteer day.  This group of kids helped us to clear cages planted along a Riparian buffer and cut invasive vines.   After some S'More making for their hard work, we went on an owl prowl where the great eyes of the Youth Group leader spotted an Eastern Screech Owl perched above our heads. Everyone in the group had a great view of our furry friend.

Sunday was much more blustery than Saturday, but we hosted the Kennett High School Earth Club for a morning of invasive vine clearing, trash pick up, and cage maintenance.  The trash find of the day was a pair of discarded stereo speakers! 

Thank you to all of our volunteers who helped us to accomplish many tasks throughout the last few days.  Please feel free to contact us by phone: 610-347-0347 ext. 101 or  if you are part of a group who would be interested in team building by volunteering on one of our nature preserves.  We would not be able to accomplish as many things as we do without the help of our volunteers!
