Description

2021 MPEA Conservation Stewardship Projects | Details Below | Ages 13+

The MPEA Conservation Stewardship Project (CSP) addresses the issue of invasive exotic plant species in the Middle Patuxent Environmental Area (MPEA). These species reduce native floral diversity by competing for sunlight, resources, space, and provide insufficient food & habitat for native wildlife. CSP events help combat this problem through the removal of invasive plants & the restoration of ecologically appropriate species, and include an educational component concerning the target species/area of the day. Registration required. No experience necessary, volunteers 18+ (13-17 with guardian present) welcome.

Howard County Rec & Parks -

Description

2021 MPEA Plant Propagation Project | Middle Patuxent Environmental Area | Ongoing Opportunity, Sept. 8 - Dec. 15, 2021 | Ages 18+

MPEA habitat restoration efforts often include removing non-native invasive plants and replanting areas with native plants, and a significant quantity of native plant material is needed for these efforts. Many species can be propagated from plants on site, providing local ecotypes as well as species not readily available for purchase. The MPEA is seeking independent volunteers for the project, who will:

Job Duties:

- plant starter plants from seed into flats, quarts, or gallons
- water established plants and repot as needed
- under staff direction, transplant or collect seeds of designated plant species within the MPEA
- assist with planting grown plants in designated habitat restoration areas
- review written and online literature to assist with the creation of a propagation notebook for a habitat restoration species list

Flexible hours. Gardening experience preferred. A phone interview and onsite training will be required for any prospective volunteers.
