This year’s Great Invader Raider Rally (GIRR) will look a little bit different than normal years. Instead of gathering in groups at local nature parks, we are going to focus more on removing non-native invasive plants where you are. Removing harmful invasive plants from your home or neighborhood can help reduce the amount of plants that jump from the community into our nature parks. Be a part of this annual tradition and restore our natural areas! You Can Do It! This year’s rally will take place over 4 days from February 19-22. You can determine when, where, and for how long you volunteer! All registered participants will receive a free custom GIRR face mask! To register, please visit https://forms.gle/BMSHRPrazQZuKfyM7.
