April 18 EARTH DAY at Pritchard Park, 1-3pm. The Weed Warriors will be holding their annual Earth Day Weed
Pull at Pritchard Park to battle ivy and other invasive plants. We
have made amazing progress on this park's invasive plant infestations and with
your help, we can do even more!
Parts of the park have nettles, so please
dress in long pants and shirts/layers appropriate for the weather. Pruning
tools including saws and clippers are helpful if you have them to bring. A reusable
water bottle with water is also a good idea. Park at lot nearest the
Japanese-American Exclusion Memorial.
"If you only volunteer once a year, please
make it Earth Day!” According to Weed Warrior Coordinator Jeannette Franks,
"We all have weeds in our yards. At least once a year, we hope you will
weed for the greater good.”
Bainbridge Weed Warriors are a loose coalition of groups, backyard and professional botanists, gardeners, horticulturalists and environmental activists battling through action and education to minimize the negative impact of non-native invasive plant species on Bainbridge Island.
We are delighted to welcome anyone to participate in our weed events which are held throughout the year. Dress for messy work, bring work gloves and appropriate tools, and help eradicate some of the noxious weeds on our island.
