Be a part of this annual tradition to remove invasive plant species from our natural areas! Individuals and groups are needed to volunteer this kick-off to the year-long Gainesville Greenway Challenge. After our ‪GIRR volunteers are done ridding our natural areas of Exotic Space Invaders, they can join us at the Victory Celebration at Morningside Nature Center! Sign up today! Under trained leadership, volunteers will work to restore pre-assigned natural areas from 9 am to 11 am and then are invited to head to Morningside Nature Center for a celebration including t-shirts, music, prizes, environmental booths and games and food ($). It may be helpful to bring buckets, trowels, or shovels for removing invasive plants. Remember to dress to be outdoors. There may be no restroom facilities until you arrive at the celebration, so please plan accordingly.

Pre-registration for the event is required
