Kent County Parks (Townsend Park Invasive Specices Project)

Saturday, January 20, 2018 from 9:30 am to 12:30 pm

Kent County Parks and Kent Conservation District are partnering to lead invasive species control projects to help protect natural habitats at Townsend Park.  In addition to cutting and treating woody invasives, we’ll be scouting the park for invasive plants so we can monitor and control these invaders for future invasive project planning. You will have the opportunity to learn how to find, identify and map invasives using the Midwest Invasive Species Information Network (MISIN) app to submit invasive species observations. 

If you have a smart phone, you can download their free app here:  Meet up site is at the Townsend Park Ramsdell parking lot just north of 6 Mile.  The approximate GPS address for the parking lot is 5390 Ramsdell Rd NE, Cannonsburg, MI.  "Volunteer Event" signs will be posted at the parking lot entrance.  Register by contacting KCP Volunteer Services at or calling 616-826-0438.
