Ault Park Advisory Council is working closely with the Cincinnati Parks Conservation & Land Management Team on forest restoration. One of the first things that has been identified as a priority is trail clearance. This involves cutting back invasive plants such as honeysuckle, privet, and burning bush and treating the stumps. Parks staff and Trained Service Persons will provide an orientation and direct the work.

Volunteers should be prepared for the weather in clothing appropriate for the temperature, wear long pants and layers (long sleeves), close-toed shoes are required. Suggested: gloves & refillable water bottle. Cincinnati Parks discourages single - use plastics.

General hand tools will be used: loppers, hand saws, hand pruners. Parks Staff and/or Cincinnati Parks Trained Service Persons will be on site to apply pesticide. Parks will supply tools and equipment, if you prefer to use your own hand tool, please bring it!
