Wrangle some weeds at bird sanctuary

Set aside some time to help with the resource management efforts by participating in a Weed Wrangle at Mary Gray Bird Sanctuary, near Connersville.

This work day will begin at Brooks Hall at 10 a.m. and last until about 1 p.m. Dawn Slack will lead each work day as participants tackle the never-ending battle with Oriental bittersweet, viburnum sieboldii, burning bush, stiltgrass, garlic mustard, and more. Monthly work days will focus on specific species most vulnerable during that period.

Participants should bring bug and tick repellent, water bottles, gloves and work boots/pants. Long-sleeve shirts are recommended. Participants should bring lunch but light snacks will be available. Tools and other equipment will be provided.

For information or to RSVP, contact Slack at dawnraschel@gmail.com. 

Mary Gray Bird Sanctuary is located in southeastern Fayette County at 3499 S. Bird Sanctuary Road, Connersville. It is the flagship property owned by Indiana Audubon Society.
