The Invasive Species Awareness Coalition of Dubois County is hosting another volunteer workday to help improve native habitat and parklands in Dubois County.

The workday set for this Saturday, November 19th from 8:30 am till 12 noon.

Volunteers are requested to spend the morning helping improve the natural habitat in the Dubois County Park around the lake, trails and campground. Members from the Invasive Species Awareness Coalition identified invasive plants in the area earlier this fall, and have discussed invasive species issues with the Dubois County Park Board and staff.

Anyone interested in helping improve the natural beauty of the park is encouraged to volunteer to help out. No knowledge of plant species is necessary, as volunteers will be grouped with knowledgeable coalition members to help eradicate invasive plants.

Any resident who would like to volunteer is asked to RSVP to group president Ron Rathfon. He can be contacted at 812-678-5049 or email him at

Volunteers should wear long pants and sturdy shoes and are asked to bring work gloves and their own pruners, loppers or handsaws. The workday volunteers will meet in the gravel parking lot in front of the lake, just across from the 4H Fairgrounds.

For more information about the group, go to or call 812-678-5049.
