Join volunteers at Emmenegger Nature Park to clear honeysuckle. Much of Emmenegger Nature Park is overgrown with bush honeysuckle, a non-native, invasive plant that is harmful to native plants and small animal habitats. This volunteer event is great for individuals, families, or groups.
Join us every Sunday September-November. Emmenegger Nature Park, 11991 Stoneywood Drive, 63122. Time: 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Meet at the Trailhead kiosk near the lower parking lot.
To join the effort or to be notified about future volunteer events, anyone interested can call 314-984-5993 or email Kparkv@kirkwoodmo.org.
