This work day will be at Bok Tower's Sandhill restoration site at Mountain Lake to remove hardwoods and invasive vegetation to help this area transition back into sandhill habitat. 

 

This area contains a small natural population of the rare and endangered Clasping Warea (Warea amplexifolia), and the clean-up efforts should help to uncover any remnant seedbank of this and other important native sandhill species.

  


Please wear long pants/long sleeves, sturdy closed-toe shoes, and a hat. Bring your work gloves and a hiker's water bottle or similar.with drinking water.


Meet at the Center for Education and Conservation Building in Bok Tower Gardens at 8 AM.

Please remember to tell the gate attendant that you're volunteering so you won't be charged admission.
