Thank you to all the volunteers that participated in the Invasive Species Blitz on January 21, 2017! In all, 60 volunteers at Blanchard Park and 27 volunteers at Savage/Christmas Creek Preserve removed more than 100 bags of invasive plants. Participants at Blanchard Park enjoyed snacks generously provided by ASCE Environmental & Water Resources Institute (EWRI). The trail mix and bananas were much appreciated and kept everyone energized and ready to work. This year's event was another great success thanks to our fabulous volunteers and staff!
