Environmental Stewardship Volunteer Opportunity for UW Students

June 3, 2013

Be a Greenway Volunteer!

City Engineering is working with the University of Wisconsin Summer WE Badger Volunteers program and is looking for greenway volunteers to identify and remove invasive species from our greenways throughout the city this summer. The work is labor-intensive and involves physically removing weeds on uneven ground. Removal of invasive species from our greenways allows native plants to thrive, providing pockets of natural habitat within an otherwise urban environment. If you are a UW student and are interested in getting outdoor volunteer experience with public service, please see the Morgridge Center for Public Service web site for more information on these positions: http://www.morgridge.wisc.edu/programs/WEBV/CityofMadisonEngineering.html.
