Join The Nature Institute for a workday at the 60-acre Heartland Prairie, located off of Rt. 140, across from Gordon Moore Park in Alton. Volunteers will be helping to remove invasive plants and shrubs from the prairie, woodland and savanna. Please be sure to wear protective clothing and sturdy shoes. Volunteers are also encouraged to bring gloves, water, clippers or loppers if you have them. Some tools will be available on site. A light lunch will be provided afterwards. Please call the TNI office at (618) 466-9930 with any questions or visit www.TheNatureInstitute.org.
*Reminder that TNI also has a group tour of the prairie each 2nd and 4th Tuesday of the month at 5:30 p.m. A hands-on class/work session is held from 5 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. Bring hoes, clippers, shovels and wear protective clothing and gloves.
