The UofL Bontanical Society invites you out to the largest urban forests in the country to help knock back invasive plant species in Jefferson Memorial Forest with Steve Kendra.

Training, including plant identification, as well as gear (gloves, hand tools, water bottles) will be provided on-site!

Please dress accordingly for this work, meaning long pants, layered shirts or thick top, and sturdy close-toed shoes.

Everyone involved will be given a coupon for a free combo meal of your choice at the Dairy Queen down the road, which we'll meet up at afterwards!

These type of volunteer activities look really great on a resume and provide an opportunity to network with people throughout our local community. Plus, some of you may need service hours for various campus organizations and this definitely meets the criteria.

Jefferson Memorial Forest is the largest metropolitan area forest in the United States at well over 7,000 acres. It's located about 20-25 minutes south of campus and is a great place for hiking, fishing, bird-watching, flora and fauna, and even camping.

RSVP on Engage for full details.
