Conservation Stewardship

This program, run by the Howard County Master Gardeners and the Howard County Recreation and Parks, focuses on habitat restoration.

One of its important services to the community is the removal of invasive plants that ruin the natural ecology of an area. Volunteers have the opportunity to work in natural and wild settings and to learn about local parks, ecology, native and invasive plants, and the wildlife that our native flora supports.

The fourth Tuesday of each month, March through November, volunteers are welcome.
