Join Nahant Marsh staff for our annual Spring Cleanup! We will have opportunities for many age levels and abilities. Volunteer jobs will include light trash pickup along the marsh drive and on Wapello Ave., heavy duty debris cleanup around our adjacent properties, and invasive species removal.
Volunteers will help with invasive species removal at the prairie. Jobs will range from cutting back invasives with loppers to hauling brush to a pile on the edge of the prairie. Nahant Marsh staff will apply chemical herbicides to cut stumps.
Volunteers should wear long pants and long sleeves, sturdy shoes, gloves, hats, bug spray, and sunscreen. The prairie is on a steep hill, so volunteers should be prepared to stand on steep, uneven terrain. Extra gloves, snacks, and water will be provided. Tools will also be provided.
