Rescheduled: Work Day at JK Black Oak: Plant Rescue
October 1 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
Due to Hurricane Ian, the plant rescue has been rescheduled to October 8.
JK Black Oak Wildlife Sanctuary is a beautiful 87-acre wildlife preserve located in Lucketts. The habitat restoration project for this work day will be a plant rescue. We’ll dig up native plants from the meadow on the east side of the property, transport them to the west side and plant them in a meadow there. All plants will be marked so plant identification skills are not required but experience with transplanting and planting skills are requested. Please be aware that poison ivy and ticks are present in the meadows. Long sleeves and pants, gardening gloves and insect repellant are recommended. If you have a shovel, please bring it. Additional information and directions to the site will be provided a couple of days before the work day. 20 volunteers needed. Registration required.
Please note: due to the environmentally sensitive habitat and rare species, JK Black Oak is not open for general public access.
