Increasing Biodiversity at Indian River Park

Saturday, Mar 16, 2019
10:00am - 1:00pm
Indian River Park

We will be returning to Indian River Park to help restore the forest floor with native shrubs and ferns. We will work in the forested and open areas surrounding the boardwalk that leads from Indian River Park to Shone Rd.

After removing the invasives that have regrown within the spaces we restored last fall, we will be planting additional native shrubs.

What to bring

Water, suitable clothing for the weather, sturdy footwear, gloves, and a positive attitude!

Important to know

We will provide tools and snacks.

Getting there

Meet us at the pathway entrance on Brockton Crescent, at the south side of Indian River Park. If you arrive late, walk down the path until you reach a fork on your right - you will see the District truck!

Please park along and access the trail system from Brockton Crescent - as there is street parking only, car pooling to this event is strongly encouraged.
