Conservation & Land Stewardship - Invasive Removal - Independent Service

With guidance and approval from Cincinnati Parks Staff and Volunteer Land Stewards, individual volunteers help with the endless task of invasive plant removal in our parks and forests. 

This service can include the application of pesticide once volunteers are fully trained. In some cases (garlic mustard or certain vines) volunteers can work to remove invasive species without the application of chemical, which is determined by the Conservation & land management team. 

Once a volunteer has earned the Trained Service Person badge, there are opportunities for small groups or individuals to work independently on invasive removal efforts. This is work is assigned or approved by the direction of the Parks Land Management Team and/or Land Steward for designated areas.  

In NO circumstances volunteers remove plants from Cincinnati Parks without approval & guidance and reporting service to designated staff.
