We're ready, are you in?

We have big goals for 2021, but we need hands, hearts, and minds to put them into action! There are hands on, in the field opportunities but also many ways to be involved that can be done at home or over the phone.  If you're not quite ready to take on a task, that is fine! Join us to learn and network--you can also virtually bring a friend!

Education Station
Sign up to give an Education Station presentation!


Education Station - Volunteers needed

Sign up to present an "education station" during one of our monthly meetings.

The Education Station is a short educational presentation at the beginning of each monthly Hamilton County Invasives Partnership meeting.  The presentation should can be 5-10 minutes and cover a specific invasive species, control method or equipment, a new development or resource you found useful, etc. You can have presentation slides but it is not required.  Remember, we're all about learning. You do not have to be an expert to present an education station!
