Work Day: Kellys Run Invasive Removal Volunteer Event, Saturday September 18th for Volunteers at AMS East in Lancaster, PA. 

This event is organized by the Lancaster Conservancy to benefit Kelly’s Run Nature Preserve. Volunteers will assist with an ecological restoration project that is removing invasive shrubs to restore native forest, savannah, and meadow. This is part of an ongoing and larger effort to restore parts of Kellys Run to pollinator garden, meadow and savannah, increasing the overall biodiversity of the preserve.

26th Annual River Rally Cleanup Event, September 18th for Volunteers at AMS West, Santa Clarita, CA 

The Santa Clara River, which runs through the Santa Clarita Valley, is one of the last natural, free-flowing river systems in southern California. Each year, the River Rally brings at least 1,200 volunteers together to clean a portion of the Santa Clara River to help protect the endangered species that call it home, including the California red-legged frog and California condor. 

During the event, volunteers will have the opportunity to enjoy the Environmental Expo, which will feature non-profits, community groups and governmental organizations offering tips on conserving our local watershed, pollution prevention, recycling and more.
