THS Community Partner of the Month -- June
Swaner Preserve & EcoCenter

www.swanerecocenter.com

Each month THS will be highlighting a non-profit in our community,
both to increase awareness of these wonderful resources and
to provide opportunities for engagement and volunteering
 
 
Did you know these great conservation facts about Swaner Preserve and EcoCenter:
  • The Swaner Preserve is a total of 1,200 acres of wetland and upland habitat protected forever through conservation easements. 
  • Fireflies can be found on the Preserve, and in the Park City area, around the summer solstice. There is even a community science project that you can upload your sightings to and contribute to real research here
  • Did you know that the Swaner Preserve hosts over 170 species of birds? Many of these build nests on the ground instead of in trees! 
  • Swaner staff and volunteers build beaver dam analogs (BDAs) that mimic the form and function of natural beaver dams. BDAs provide cooler, cleaner water for better fish habitat and other species to thrive.  
  • Did you know that the sagebrush shrubland on the north side of the Preserve is home to hundreds of plant species? Join us on our Wildflower Hike Thursday June 17th 5:30-7 to see what's blooming!
 
Please join the THS Social Action Committee for an afternoon of hands on Volunteering. 
Help Swaner Preserve manage invasive weeds and restore this critical wetland habitat!
 
Meet at the EcoCenter, 1258 Center Drive, at 1:30 on Sunday June 27th and head out onto the Preserve to remove invasive weeds.
Volunteers should wear sunscreen, long pants, closed toe shoes, and bring plenty of water.
Volunteers should be able to walk over uneven ground, bend over for extended periods of time, and work in a variety of weather conditions.
Work gloves will be available to borrow, or bring a pair that you prefer.
 
Sign up by June 26th online via the registration link here: https://swanerecocenter.volunteermatters.org/project-catalog/31
