Woodland Beach Wineberry Weed-out

Woodland Beach Wildlife Area (Meet at the parking lot at the end of Woodland Beach Rd.)

Project Description: Wineberry is an invasive plant that is covering and pushing out native plants in an important wildlife habitat at the Woodland Beach Wildlife Area. This is a unique, rich woods habitat that is uncommon on Delaware’s Coastal Plain and harbors a variety of special plants. Join us as we work to remove the invasive wineberry and restore the native plants in this great habitat!

What to Bring/Wear: Work gloves will be provided but volunteers may also bring their own.

Age Requirement: Volunteers for this project must be at least 15 years old. Those under the age of 18 must provide a parental consent form. An adult must accompany volunteers under the age of 16.

Contact: Volunteers are asked to pre-register with contact information in case of inclement weather leading to postponement. For more information or to volunteer for this event, contact Julia Adams at 302-735-3608 or julia.adams@state.de.us.
