Eco-steward Invasive Buckthorn Removal at Rogue River Park

March 30 @ 9:30 am - 12:30 pm

Free

Rogue River Watershed Partners, Trout Unlimited, Kent County Parks, and Kent Conservation District are partnering to lead invasive species control projects to help protect natural habitats at several parks this winter. In addition to cutting and treating woody invasives, we’ll be scouting the park for invasive plants so we can monitor and control these invaders for future invasive project planning. You will have the opportunity to learn how to find, identify and map invasives using the Midwest Invasive Species Information Network (MISIN) app to submit invasive species observations.  You can download their free app here: https://www.misin.msu.edu/apps/

Saturday, March 30th, 2019 from 9:30 am – 12:30 pm  – Protect natural habitats at Rogue River Park by helping to remove invasive species.  A collaboration between Kent Conservation District and Kent County Parks, this project provides the opportunity to learn about woody invasive species and the identification and control methods used during winter months.
