Biodiversity Brigade

Attempting to control the onslaught of invasive plants on Arc properties is a perennial struggle. Each preserve presents its own unique challenges that are met by the Arc’s land stewardship team and a cadre of dedicated volunteers known as the “Biodiversity Brigade.” Whether you are a volunteer who prefers to be a solitary worker or one who enjoys group work days, visit the Biodiversity Brigade page for more information.
