LaBagh Woods - Centennial Volunteer Stewardship Workdays

Tags: Volunteers, Centennial Volunteers, and Centennial Volunteers

This uncommon woodland community encompasses wet savanna, degraded marsh, and mature floodplain woods, and is dominated by swamp white oaks. Plants such as swamp saxifrage, blue flag iris, and bluejoint grass are indicators the wetness of this site. In the more mesic woodland along the river bluff, one finds plants with such picturesqe names as zig-zag goldenrod, wild geranium, wood reed, bottlebrush grass and golden alexanders. Come lend a hand as we help restore areas that are being choked by invasives.  

Our goal is to grow a community who will become caretakers through on-going education and training.
