We have a limited capacity to supervise this project and will close registration once we have registered 240 volunteers. We will need groups of six or more volunteers to have one person per every 6-8 volunteers attend one of our Squad Boss training sessions and learn how to lead their fellow volunteers in the day's work. We will work to remove invasive exotic plants and trash from Fortress Rosecrans, Old Fort Park and the Lytle Creek Greenway. Volunteers should wear long sleeve shirts, long pants and closed toe shoes. Please also bring work gloves and a water bottle if you have them.
