Millennium Park Invasive Species Project! *UPDATE* Project Now at Kent Trails North Trailhead

Saturday, November 4, 2023

11:00 am - 1:00 pm
Kent Trails - North Trailhead
1700 Butterworth St SW
Grand Rapids, MI

DUE TO A RACE AND LIMITED PARKING, WE WILL BE MEETING AT THE KENT TRAILS NORTH TRAILHEAD AT 1700 BUTTERWORTH. Do NOT go to Millennium Park. The Kent Trails North Trailhead is down the road from the new Admin Building. A map will be sent prior to the project and there will be “volunteer event” signs and arrows. Sorry for any confusion!

Learn how to ID and control various invasive species throughout habitats along the Kent Trails on Saturday, November 4th, 2023! Come on out, get some fresh air, and help support our native ecosystems. Training, supplies and tools are provided. 

Registration is required. Please click the “register” button at the bottom of this page to sign up!

NOTE: Projects are not canceled for light rain, but they may be delayed or canceled for heavy rain or weather advisories. Please dress for the weather and pack personal items such as water bottles, insect repellent, etc. We strongly recommend wearing long pants and work shoes or boots to all events. All tools and supplies, including light work gloves, will be provided on site. Waiver forms will be available on site, or groups/organizations may submit a waiver prior to the event date. Any child under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent/guardian or designated organization leader for the duration of the event. Although leashed pets are welcome at most parks, pets (except for service animals) are not permitted at volunteer events due to safety concerns.

If you have any questions, please email park.volunteers@kentcountymi.gov. Thanks! 🙂
