Join us in removing invasive Japanese hedge parsley from Hudson Mills Metropark’s Disc Golf Course. We will meet in the Park Office parking lot (look for the Metroparks vehicle and blue flag). Volunteers receive free day entry to the park and a free round of disc golf, just let the toll booth attendant know you are at the park for a volunteer workday.
Everyone is welcome! All necessary tools and equipment will be provided, as well as a water cooler and snacks. We will provide gloves, but feel free to bring your favorite pair! Please come dressed for a day outside and off trail in areas that may have poison ivy (closed-toe shoes, long pants, hat, sunscreen).
Japanese hedge parsley is an invasive herbaceous biennial that grows in a variety of habitats. It crowds out and take important resources from native plants. Removing it will increase the health of the ecosystem and allows natives to flourish. Native biodiversity is extremely important to support wildlife, native bees, and other insects. Volunteers are a critical part of positively impacting natural areas we wouldn’t be able to otherwise! Your help allows the Metroparks to protect unique ecosystems that will be enjoyed for generations to come.
