Restore! Events at Trout Brook Nature Sanctuary 

Restore! Events at Trout Brook Nature Sanctuary 

We are holding drop-in events to assist in restoration of Bruce Vento and Trout Brook Nature Sanctuary. No experience is necessary- this is a great activity for anyone who wants to get outside, explore a new park and learn about restoring our natural areas.

Dates: Wednesdays, June 5, 12, 26

Registration: Help us determine the amount of supplies we need to bring each week. Register here: Trout Brook Registration

Who: Individuals or small groups. If accommodations are needed please let us know.


Why: Our nature sanctuaries are home to a diverse native prairie plant community. Volunteers play a huge role in restoring this park’s native habitat. They help us control invasive species that threaten the integrity of the native plant community! Explore a new park, give back to the community, be outside and meet awesome people!

Meeting Locations:

What to Bring: All tools will be provided. We ask that you bring full water bottles, wear long pants and closed toed-shoes. Please dress for the weather.
