(BEDFORD) - The original workday, planned for Earth Day - Saturday - is cancelled due to weather, but has been rescheduled for May 6.

King has a variety of projects planned for the day in this large wetland complex along the Lost River. King said there will be plenty of projects to interest everyone. He has some wood duck boxes to put up, brush piles to build for habitat, and a good number of trees to plant. There are also invasives to remove, some weed-eating to do around control structures, and trash to pick up.

"Anyone who can help is welcome," King says. He suggests volunteers wear sturdy footwear, long pants, and bring gloves and water. If people want to meet at the Roland Wetland, he plans to start work at 9:00 am on Saturday, May 6. If people want to caravan, he will meet them at Lowes in Bedford at 8:00 am that morning. "We plan to work until noon, so you have time to do something great for wildlife and still enjoy the rest of your weekend!" notes King.

King would like people to RSVP if they are coming so he has enough tools and equipment. To let him know you are coming or for more information contact King at the Bedford office of the Hoosier NF office at 812-276-4741 or email
