Conservation & Land Stewardship - Avon Woods - Invasive Species Control


***Please note - the Saturday, January 6 service event is cancelled. 

Work with Parks Staff and community leaders to assist with on-going efforts to control invasive species at Avon Woods Nature Preserve. 

Non - native plants such as honeysuckle and porcelain vine grow aggressively in this climate and create real problems for our native ecosystem. These invasive plants choke out the natural growth of native plants that provide more for a healthy under story and more for local wildlife. There are also safety concerns, as these plants grow fast and thick, and obstruct sight-lines in public areas. Poison Ivy also grows in these parks, please be cautious and aware of your surroundings.
