    Join volunteers from Cafe Reconcile as we weed out the invasive cattails on the Greenway! This hard work will allow the ten species of native water-loving grasses being planted in the Greenway's bioswales to thrive.

    Be prepared!

    Wear:

    • Weather-appropriate clothes that you don't mind getting dirty
    • Closed-toe shoes (sneakers, hiking boots, shrimp boots and rain boots work great!)

    Bring:

    • Sun protection
    • A water bottle (we'll have a cooler for refills!)
