Next Upcoming Event – Woodland Restoration Volunteer Day

Join us as we restore woodland areas within Easter Lake Park!

Many amazing local companies, organizations, and schools offer Volunteer Time Off (VTO) as an added benefit for their workforce. This provides an excellent opportunity to provide those within their ranks with a unique way to create positive impact within their community. If your organization offers VTO hours, come spend it outside with Polk County Conservation in a beautiful county park!

Invasive species removal is at the forefront of restoration efforts in our Iowa woodlands. Spend your time on the front line of this continuous battle as we removal honeysuckle, buckthorn, and oriental bittersweet from Easter Lake Park.

Come and go between 10 a.m. – 3 p.m. per your allotted hours. Wear long pants, sturdy closed-toe shoes, and bring a refillable water bottle.

REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED as a detailed meeting location and workday information will be provided to those registered.
