The volunteer series continues! Help us improve our county park. Every Wednesday we will be using hand tools to cut honeysuckle, an invasive plant that is taking the place of more valuable native plants. Work locations will be determined a week in advance. Registration is required by the Sunday before each week's event. Participants ages 15 and under need an adult present.
