Phipps Park Invasive Plant Education

SUNDAY, 17th March: Phipps Park Invasive Plant Education/Volunteer Program, #4

Want great outdoor exercise, education and an opportunity to “give back” by helping to rid a beautiful Tallahassee park of its invasive plants at the same time? Please join this event, one of a series organized by the Florida Trail Association (FTA) and the Florida Native Plant Society (FNPS) at Elinor Klapp-Phipps Park. The activity begins at 9:30am at the Meridian trailhead, ends ~12:30. Enter the park directly from Meridian Rd at the entrance for baseball fields; the trailhead is located on left about ¼ mile in from Meridian Rd.

Some tools will be provided, but please bring a clipper and/or a shovel (pointed type is best), and/or root jack, if you own them. No pets, please.
