This calendar will not usually contain volunteer opportunities. CAMN members can find those in the emailed Weekly Reader, or in the Member Pages area. For more information, please contact the Volunteer Opportunities chairperson.
Work alongside your fellow CAMN members, members of partner agencies and UT faculty, staff, and students to remove invasive species at the Brackenridge Field Laboratory. No experience necessary! No plant ID skills needed! Just a willingness to learn and get your hands dirty. Our primary work site will require a short hike on an uneven trail and mildly to moderately strenuous activity. We are also able to accommodate a small number of folks who need to work closer to the buildings.
Wear work clothes appropriate for the weather and closed toe shoes. Bring your favorite work tools and gloves or borrow ours; we have gloves, hand tools, and weed wrenches. Bring water, snacks, and a positive attitude.
