Hellen Creek Forest and Wildlife Preserve is 50 acres of stream and ravine along Hellen Creek. We have over 25 species of trees including hemlocks and we are adjacent to The Nature Conservancy's Hemlock Preserve.
Join us for a quick tour of the preserve before we get down to the ongoing work of invasive plant removal and native wildflower plantings. Learn how you can improve your own backyard to make it friendlier to the environment and take a native plant home for your garden.
Wear/Bring: Sturdy clothes and shoes. We will provide gloves and tools, and refreshments.
