Native Seed Spreading and Invasive Vegetation Removal

Oct 07, 2023 9:00AM—12:00PM


Cannonsburg State Game Area, Kent County


Join MUCC’s On the Ground (OTG) program in partnership with Kent Conservation District for an oak savanna habitat restoration day at Cannonsburg State Game Area!

Volunteers are needed on Saturday, October 7 from 9am to noon. 

We will be spreading native grass and forb seeds as well as removing invasive vegetation in an effort to increase biodiversity and to prevent the establishment of non-native invasive vegetation. The work site is about 0.5 miles from the designated parking area.

Meeting location: Volunteers will meet at the Dursum Road parking area in Ada.

All ages are welcome to attend. Registered participants will receive free lunch and a volunteer appreciation gift. Attendees are encouraged to bring reusable water bottles, although bottled water and snacks will be provided throughout the day. Please wear good hiking shoes and tear-resistant clothes. This project will take place rain or shine, unless there is severe weather so please dress accordingly.

Please contact Habitat Program and Partnerships Coordinator Kristina Kennedy at with any questions regarding this event or the OTG program.

This restoration project was funded by a DNR Wildlife Habitat Grant awarded to Kent Conservation District.
