Join volunteers from Norwalk River Watershed Association (NRWA) and Woodcock Nature Center in cutting back invasive plants and planting native replacements along the banks of the Norwalk River in Wilton. The effort will take place in Merwin Meadows on Saturday, Oct. 8, 9:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m..

The group will begin with an overview of how to identify invasive plant species in the area and learn why native plants are important to the health of the watershed. Participants should wear long pants and sturdy shoes, bring clippers and gloves, although some will be available.

Volunteers will meet in the Merwin Meadows’ parking lot at the bottom of Lover’s Lane. For more information, contact NRWA via email or call 877.NRWA.INFO (877.679.2463).
