See below for volunteer dates and times or contact Urban Ranger Sumoski to schedule a private event for groups of 10 or more.

Forestry Stewardship Corps

Help us target invasive plants and rejuvenate the forest of Paradise Creek Nature Park. Invasive plants impact the heath of the forest by killing off natives, changing the habitat, and affecting the food chain. Learn how to identify and remove these plants and what you can do at home to keep them away.
