Become a Conservation and Stewardship Volunteer
Over the years, the land at Havenwoods has healed incredibly. You may remember Havenwoods as a county prison, waste dumpsite, and Nike missile site. Recovery and restoration have come a long way, but there is still much to do. Everything from managing invasive plants to picking up litter helps to keep Havenwoods an inviting place.
Havenwoods has over 6 miles of trails! To maintain them, staff and volunteers need to add wood chips, prune overhanging branches, and fill potholes. Trail maintenance is usually done during the warm weather months. Call to schedule a time for you or your group to lend a hand. National Trails Day is always the first Saturday in June!
Individuals and groups can reduce stress and get great exercise by pulling, cutting, digging, and hauling invasive plants! In spring, tackle garlic mustard and dame's rocket. In summer, crown vetch and bird's foot trefoil demand attention. During summer, it's time for thistles, teasel, and wild parsnip. And, in fall and winter, cut buckthorn, and other shrubs.
Pick Up Litter
There is always a need for litter pick-up on the property! Call to schedule a time for you or your group to lend a hand.
Havenwoods also participates in the county-wide Great American Cleanup on the fourth Saturday in April each year.
