Help wanted!

Salem No Ivy Coalition is looking for a few reliable folks to be "Crew Leaders" for upcoming (Fall 2016 - Spring 2017) ivy work parties.

We would like to offer this to folks that are interested in helping organize our ivy removal work.

You will get training to cover all the duties (it is pretty simple ). If you are interested in taking some leadership in this regard, please message us.
