Help the Upper Sugar River Watershed Association restore the Sugar River Wetlands State Natural Area during its “4th Saturday” volunteer work days. In February, tomorrow, volunteers will help burn brush piles accumulated last winter and spring, and continue removing invasives and treating them with herbicide. Volunteers are encouraged to dress for the weather and bring a pair of work gloves if possible. There will also be work gloves available for people to borrow. Boots are not a bad idea, either. Any work tools needed for the day will be provided, but volunteers are welcome to bring their own equipment, like handsaws and loppers, if they prefer. Coffee, hot chocolate and refreshments will be provided. Volunteers and work leaders will meet where Epic Lane and County View Road meet in Verona, overlooking the Epic Systems campus to the east and the Military Ridge State Trail to the west.
