Description: 

Join Rock Creek Conservancy and the National Park Service as we remove invasive plant species from the western section of Melvin Hazen. This is a family-friendly event!

In 2019, the Conservancy is focusing its restoration efforts on five “mini-oases” in Rock Creek Park that are important to the health of Rock Creek and to the communities that live near them. Invasive species are among the biggest issues plaguing this urban park. We invite you to help keep this “mini-oasis” clean. We hope to see you there! 

Yale Blue Green (YBG) is the shared interest group for Yale University alumni who are engaged in environmental and sustainability topics and issues. We connect Yale alumni, students, faculty, staff and affiliates. https://yalebluegreen.org/
