Kansas City WildLand’s mission is to restore and manage the remnants of Kansas City’s original landscape. Typical work days last between 3-4 hours and are offered during the week and weekends. Our workdays include:
Honeysuckle and Garlic Mustard Removal
Invasive species like honeysuckle and garlic mustard are invasive species that form a thick understory that limits sunlight to native plants inhibiting seedling establishment and forest regeneration. They also compete for soil moisture, nutrients, and may produce a chemical that inhibits native plant growth. During these workdays, volunteers hand pull to remove seedlings and use cutting and herbicide treatments.
Native Seed Collection & Harvesting
There are seed production plots being planted across the region and we need help collecting the valuable seeds. This is a seasonal volunteer opportunity and will be posted on our events calendar as opportunities arise.
Become a Member of our Seed Team – Higher Level Opportunity
Seed Team volunteers help identify, collect, and process seeds from the wild land sites. These seeds are high-value, significant forbs that are then replanted on public lands.
Looking for an opportunity to get outside and help the community? Kansas City WildLands specializes in corporate workdays. Contact Eric Hemphill at firstname.lastname@example.org to find out more details and see if an opportunity can be scheduled for your group.
