Hillsborough River State Park

In celebration of Earth Day and the Great American Cleanup, Hillsborough River State Park, is joining the effort to raise awareness of how trees make a "significant and measurable impact on the Earth and will serve as the foundation of a cleaner, healthier and more sustainable planet for all." Come learn about the invasive and/or exotic species of plants that the park is trying to remove, and the native species of plants and trees that are beneficial to the park and perhaps your home landscape. You will be given the opportunity to take a short hike and assist with the removal of some of the park's invasive exotic species, removal of litter from our trails and the Hillsborough River, and/or the clearing of limbs and debris that may impede the safe use of our trails.

Fees: 

No fees for volunteers.

All other attendees must pay the normal park admission:  $6 per vehicle with multiple occupants; $4 per vehicle with a single occupant.

Event Time: 

Saturday, April 22, 2017 - 8:30am to 12:00pm EDT
