Marsh Collaboration: Invasive Species Removal

Volunteers will remove buckthorn, a woody invasive shrub. By clearing invasive species from our parks, we are creating healthier ecosystems for our native species. All participants must complete a release form, and minors must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. For more information, contact Brittany Leick via email or (225) 240-0845.

This event is offered in collaboration with Wayne County Parks and the Western Lake Erie Cluster of the Stewardship Network.
