Hauling shrubs at Hoover Complex News · September 28, 2012
On Saturday, Sept. 29, volunteers across the United States will help restore the beauty and vitality of our public lands as part of the 19th annual National Public Lands Day. More than 170,000 volunteers are expected at more than 2,000 sites in communities and parks around the nation.
Herbert Hoover National Historic Site will enlist local volunteers and volunteer organizations to help reconstruct the 81-acre native tallgrass prairie: a great opportunity to work hands-on with our natural resources.
Volunteers will cut and haul shrubs and invasive weeds from the grassland.
If you would like to help, contact Adam Prato at (319) 643-2541. Meet at the Visitor Center at 8:30 a.m. for an orientation and to get signed up.
Work in the prairie will be from 9 a.m. to noon. Dress for the weather and wear comfortable work clothes. Water, sunscreen, insect repellent, sunglasses, and hats are recommended. Long pants and closed-toe footwear are required.
