Weed Wrangle® at McCloud Nature Park

April 17 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm EDT

Free
In celebration of Earth Day, give back by helping eradicate garlic mustard – a non-native invasive plant – from McCloud Nature Park!
 
This plant is taking over forests, and our native spring wildflowers have to compete with it for sunlight, space, nutrients, and water.
 
Bring a water bottle and work gloves, dress for the weather, and wear long pants. Masks/face coverings are required when you can’t maintain safe distances from others. This is a great activity for scout groups.
 
Hiking terrain info: easy to moderate difficulty; natural surfaces; up to 2 miles
 
Recommended age: 10 through adult. Children younger than 16 must attend with a parent/guardian who is able to hike the trails. Children must be under the supervision of their parent/guardian at all times.
 
Free to attend. Registration is recommended so that we can adequately prepare for the number of volunteers participating. Sign up at https://www.signupgenius.com/go/5080a44a4a72fa1f94-weed1
 
This is in cooperation with the Hendricks County Invasive Management Cooperative.
Contact Sarah Wolf at 765-676-5437 or volunteer@hcparks.net if you have questions.
