Saturday, March 12th, 2022 from 10:00am to 12:00pm (CT)
This has ended. If you attended, let the organizer know by recording your Impact!



Thank you!

Join us to help preserve the ecology of Lake Wilson by creating better conditions for our native plants and wildlife as we work to prevent the spread of invasive plants in the area!  We will be removing invasive bush honeysuckle and other non-native bushes along the trail.  


  • Getting there/Parking:

This event will take place in southeast Fayetteville at Lake Wilson4668 S. Lake Wilson Road, Fayetteville Ar. 72701.  When you arrive, please park on the dam then follow the signs to the pavilion, approx. 5 minute walk.  (We ask that you park on the dam because the pavilion parking area only holds a few cars and is hard to back out of once full.)  


  • The Event: Sat, March 12th, 10:00 am – 12:00 pm    

Meet us at the pavilion and kick things off at 10:00 with some baked treats sponsored by Stonemill Bread Company and coffee sponsored by Basecamp Coffee Company and then we will do a quick hands-on training and tool/glove distribution, before stepping into the woods to begin work.  Our focus will be on removing existing bush honeysuckle and other non-native invasives in the wooded area along the first quarter mile of Joe Clark Trail, starting at the lake pavilion.   Emphasis will be on pulling up plants rather than cutting, and we encourage you to bring eye protection such as goggles, work gloves, a digging or prying tool such as a pick, mattock or shovel if you have one. 

This event is brought to you by Pack Rat Outdoor Center, the University of Arkansas Department of Biological Sciences and the City of Fayetteville.


Thank you again for your interest and help.  Please feel free to reach out to with any questions, and we hope to see you Saturday morning!
