This event has been cancelled.


Lost Valley Trail, Boxley Valley, AR (about 1.5 hours from Fayetteville).

Volunteers will meet at 1:30 p.m. at the pavilion at Lost Valley Trail to pull and bag stilt grass, an invasive species of grass that smothers the native wild flowers, which have historically been prolific and beautiful along this trail. Stilt grass is easy to pull. Volunteers will need the following: 

  • Work gloves 

  • Personal water bottle for hydration 

  • Bug spray 

  • Clothing and shoes appropriate for work 

At arrival, those participating will fill out required national park service volunteer paperwork, and then listen to a short explanation of the project and the process before pulling.
