Volunteer Day – March Weed Wrangle at Old Stone Fort

The Weed Wrangle is part of a Garden Club of America’s national stewardship effort to remove invasive plants from public spaces. Parks across the state will be hosting events that will not only be great opportunities for volunteers to get outside and help restore their native natural beauty, but also provide the knowledge and skill to combat these non-native invaders at your own home.  

Old Stone Fort State Archeological Park’s (OSFSP) Weed Wrangle is schedule for Saturday, March 2, 2024.

Park Ranger Indiana Calloway invites the community to join the Weed Wrangle at Old Stone Fort to aid in the improvement of our park through volunteering. Projects range from trail upkeep, invasive plant removal, and park cleanup. Volunteering will help both the local environment as well as everyone who enjoys the park from Manchester to the wider world. The invasive plant clearing will be happening on the Enclosure Trail. Volunteers can meet at the Park’s Museum Rooftop.
