We need your help to steward the natural environment at Deer Creek Park, known to locals as Rocketship Park. Volunteers will remove invasive bush honeysuckle (9/24 & 10/5) and plant native trees (10/15) along the Deer Creek Greenway. Your assistance will help improve water quality, enhance wildlife habitat, and create a healthier environment for all.
Enter Deer Creek Park off Laclede Station Road in Maplewood and park in either of the two parking lots. Jay will be waiting for volunteers under one of the pavilions. Look for the tall man with the tools.
