Volunteers wanted for work day

By Staff | Jan 16, 2017

The Potomac Valley Audubon Society is seeking volunteers to help with maintenance work at the new Cool Spring Nature Preserve in Jefferson County on Sunday, Jan. 15.

The event is being billed as a Martin Luther King, Jr. Service Event, in honor of the Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday. The work to be done will include removing invasive plants and enhancing habitat for wildlife.

Anyone willing to pitch in will be welcomed. The work will start at 1:30 p.m. and last until 4:30 p.m. All necessary tools will be provided, along with hot drinks and some snacks.\ If the weather is inclement on Jan. 14, the work day will be shifted to Jan. 22. If there is snow on the ground, the work day will be canceled and rescheduled to some other time.

The Cool Spring Preserve is located at 1469 Lloyd Road, about six miles southwest of Charles Town. Detailed directions can be found at www.potomacaudubon.org.
