Hey Everyone!

Come out and join the Weed Warriors at Lake Crabtree this weekend to fight
invasive species! We will have Weed Warrior Basic Training from 10am to
12pm to go over the identification and control of invasive species, and
then we will tackle invasive species around the park from 1pm to 3pm with
our Kick Some Grass event. Come ready to learn about invasive species and
to have a great time!

firsthand why prevention is so important.
