St. Louis Audubon fall stewardship projects

By Mitch Leachman

Work crew at an Audubon Society work dayWe had another fantastic year made possible by thousands of hours of service given by hundreds of volunteers just like you! Specifically, nearly 600 folks came out for 14 stewardship projects including the installation of over 1,600 native plants and the clearing or maintenance of bush honeysuckle on 16 acres of natural areas! Many thanks to all who helped out! We’re better off because of your service, and we hope you can come back this fall for one of our projects!
