Invasives Strike Force Trail Crew

The Trail Conference's Invasives Strike Force Trail Crew  is made up of volunteers dedicated to eradicating invasive plants along hiking trails in the region.  Anyone can participate in the Invasives Strike Force Trail Crew - prior attendance at a training workshop is not required and you do not need to know how to identify the plants. We provide on-the-job training. For all trips, bring work gloves, water and lunch. We provide the tools. Trips will usually be cancelled if it is raining.
