We will tackle invasive plants such as callery pear and honeysuckle that are invading the prairie at Riverside Natural Area..

If you have work gloves, loppers, or a saw please bring them. We will have materials to borrow.

We will park along Joe Nuxhall Way in Joyce Park. Look for signs and vehicle parked between the Hawks RC aircraft field and River Rd.

There are no restrooms nearby. We will have water to drink.

We will have sanitizer for hands and disinfectant for tools. Depending upon covid restrictions at the time, we may ask you to wear a mask.

It will be Fall in Ohio, so the ground may be hard and dry, or it may be really muddy. Please wear clothes that you don't mind getting dirty.
