Join the Greenway Network to remove invasive honeysuckle from Wapelhorst Park! This nonnative plant is taking over and choking out the native understory plants creating an ecological disaster. Come help stop this weed from taking over our park and have some fun too!
Ages 12 & up, but minors must be accompanied by a supervising adult.
Be sure to dress for the weather. Wear sturdy shoes. Bring a water bottle. Bring gloves. Be prepared to get outside and make a difference.
Greenway Network will provide the tools, extra gloves for borrowing, light snacks and 5-gallon water jugs for refilling water bottles. Volunteers are welcome to bring their own manual tools for cutting, but no power tools please. Participants under the age of 18 must be under the supervision of a responsible adult with appropriate consent documentation.
We hope to see you soon!
