The Southern Oregon Land Conservancy will host a stewardship event to clear out invasive plants from 9 a.m. to noon Saturday, June 5, at the Rogue River Preserve.

The preserve is a 352-acre site along the banks of the Rogue River that includes “several distinct habitats that support remarkable biodiversity, including at least 32 rare, declining and uncommon plant and animal species,” the SOLC website says.

Participants will pull invasive Scotch broom and yellow star thistle to make room for native oak trees and wildflowers, according to a news release.

Attendees are asked to bring gloves and to wear long pants and closed-toe shoes. Weed wrenches and other tools, gloves and individually packaged snacks will be provided.

Current Centers For Disease Control and Prevention guidelines for COVID-19 mitigation will be observed.
