The event is being organized by The Nature Conservancy as part of the 10th Annual National Invasive Weed Awareness Week.
The purpose of the event is to collect as many Air Potato (Dioscorea bulbifera) tubers as possible to prevent new vines from establishing and to increase the awareness of the threat invasive species pose to natural areas and biodiversity. The volunteer who collects the largest tuber (of the Roundup sites throughout NE Florida) will win a grand prize. All ages welcome. The City will supply water and garbage bags, but requests volunteers bring their own gloves. Instructions and information will be provided at the event. Come join in the fun and help preserve our conservation lands.
For more information call the Public Works Department at 247-5834.
