Douglas County Conservation invites citizens to a volunteer activity to explore Clough Island in the St. Louis River Estuary. This volunteer opportunity involves traveling to the island by boat (bring your own or access a free program canoe) and spending a half-day hand-pulling small invasive buckthorn plants in support of a major habitat restoration effort.

The events will take place Oct. 5-6 from 9:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. each day. Please reach out to Zach Stewart, Douglas County invasive species coordinator, at if you are interested or if you have questions about registration.

One meeting is on the calendar for next week: Transportation and Infrastructure meeting will take place on Wednesday, Oct. 5 from 9:30–11:30 a.m. in room 201 of the Government Center.
