HOW IT MAKES A DIFFERENCE

Invasive species of plants threaten our forests by making it difficult for native plants to grow and by disrupting the natural ecosystems that exist in our forests. Removing invasive species help keep the forests healthy so that wildlife can find food and shelter.

DESCRIPTION

Come to this spring event to help the forests - and have some fun! You will enjoy music, face painting, crafts and a scavenger hunt while helping with an essential task: pulling up invasive weeds that threaten the Blue Hills. We'll provide everything you need. You just need to come with an adult, your family, or a youth group/club!


ITEMS NEEDED

1. Water bottle and snack

2. Close-toed shoes

3. Suntan lotion and/or bug spray (if desired)

*You may also want to consider wearing long pants.
