Dionondehowa Needs Volunteers for Creek Restoration
Dionondehowa is calling for volunteers to help with the Creek Restoration Project on Sunday, June 1, any time from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Volunteers may come and go as they need. This year’s work involves the removal of invasive honeysuckle bushes from along the Creek corridor. Thanks to botanist David Hunt, 300 have been marked in preparation for removal. Director Bonnie Hoag says they hope to remove a third of these, depending on the number of helpers who come. It is a sprinkle-or-shine event. There will be attention to ticks, including up-to-date information, the level of danger for that day, repellents, tips on dressing and tick checks when workers depart. Lunch is provided. To sign up, call 518-854-7764.
Dionondehowa Wildlife Sanctuary and School is a forever-wild nonprofit land trust located on 217 acres bordering the Battenkill near Shushan, N.Y. The Sanctuary serves as a refuge and recharge area for wildlife and humans alike. The School is dedicated to nature studies and to the healing and expressive arts. Visit dionondehowa.org for details.
