Around ten years ago, we worked with the Phialdelphia Zoo to plant around 100 trees on George’s Hill. Today, these trees are being taken over by nonnative invasive vines like mile-a-minute. Help us rescue the trees and protect our forest!

No experience or special knowledge necessary – beginners welcome!
