8th Annual Great Invader Raider Rally Registration is Open!
Join us for the 8th Annual Great Invader Raider Rally, formerly the Great Air Potato Round-Up, on Saturday, Feb. 12, to clean up the city’s parks and natural areas as part of one of the largest invasive plant awareness events in the nation! During the Great Invader Raider Rally, volunteers are assigned to a location where they will remove invasive plants from 9-11:30 a.m.
After removing invasive plants, participants are welcomed to a celebration at Morningside Nature Center to receive a commemorative t-shirt. The celebration also features information on alternative plants, eco-friendly educational booths, music and food available for purchase.
