The American River ParkwayHazel Avenue to Discovery ParkSacramento, CA 95608


Along the American River Parkway, there is an ongoing battle between native plants and their non-notive counterparts that are striving to dominate the landscape. Many of these plants are foreign to the region, have no natural predators or positive impact on the eco-system and have ample ability to multiply. These plants are crowding out the native plants that once dominated the Parkway.

The Invasive Plant Patrol (IPP) is a group of volunteers (individuals or groups) who adopt an area in need along the Parkway to survey and remove these non-native, invasive plants. The IPP receive training from ARPF staff on plant identification, treatment and removal techniques and other hard skills.

IPP volunteers can set their own, flexible schedule, which could vary by season or river flows!
