Memorial Park is currently overrun with a wide variety of non-native invasive plants which are causing habitat destruction and are negatively impacting wildlife populations.

We want to begin reversing this alarming trend and we need your help.

Join the Weed Warriors invasive-plant eradication project at Memorial Park. This is a great project for people who love the park and want to see it restored to its natural state.
