INLC’s Saltese Uplands Addition property lies along the northern boundary of the Saltese Uplands Conservation Area. It represents classic shrub-steppe habitat and is very geologically unique. Trees on the property are frequented by raptors of all kinds. The Conservancy strives to not only protect lands like these, but also to enhance the habitats and forest health of the landscape and learn more about the land to inform our land protection efforts.
One of the important ways we can take care of our lands is to promote native species and remove invasive ones. This work party will focus on the removal of non-native, invasive species that threaten the habitats that are so important for wildlife and healthy ecosystem function.
At Saltese Uplands, we’ll focus on:
- Spotted knapweed
- Rush skeletonweed
INLC will provide all necessary tools and gloves. Please bring with you snacks or a lunch, plenty of drinking water, appropriate layers, solid hiking boots, and a face covering.
