Weed Warriors-Learn how to fight the battle of invasive plant species!
Join us for a Weed Warrior introduction session and the fight to take back our parks and our woodlands. Invasive species like garlic mustard and buckthorn are threatening to choke out native plants and wildflowers and the animal diversity will soon follow. We need your help!
Q: Who are we?
A: Volunteers – adults, families, students – who have a passion for the environment and conservation and are willing to work toward removing invasive plant species in the park or in their own yard.
Q: When do we meet?
A: Weed Warriors meet weekly. Volunteers come to the sessions that meet their schedule. Some volunteers also enjoy going out solo and working independently as their time allows.
Q: How do you get started?
A: Attend this introductory class to learn how to take back our parks and our woodlands. Invasive species like garlic mustard and buck thorn are threatening to choke out native plants and wildflowers. By joining the Weed Warrior program, you will learn what these invasive plants look like and the tools used to fight them. Alongside other weed warriors, you will learn how to use the tools provided and how to effectively make a difference in the invasive species battle. Once these skills are mastered, you can continue the fight with other warriors or on your own time and when it is convenient for you. We need your help. Become a weed warrior!
