Take time before you return to the classroom to get out in nature and help restore the natural environment at The Grove.  You’ll be involved in removing non-native plants, clearing debris, and making way for native species to flourish.  It’s a terrific opportunity to learn about the native environment and the importance of restoration.


Please wear long pants and closed shoes.  Be prepared for the weather with sun screen and bug spray.  We provide protective gear including gloves and goggles.
