Hidden Valley consists of 40-acres of urban wilderness in the middle of Lawrence, serving as a camp for local Girl Scouts and other Douglas County youth. Our main focus for this workday will be native woods restoration: removing the invasive shrub honeysuckle. Tools and gloves are provided, but extra loppers, handsaws, and chainsaws appreciated. Jobs will include removal, treating stumps, and hauling to burn and chip sites. Other projects available for all ages and skills: wetland maintenance (removing cattails), wood cutting/splitting for fire wood, stocking woodpiles, mulching, cleaning fire rings, planting native grasses, and more. Any amount of time appreciated. Individuals or groups welcome.
