Event Details

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.

We will provide necessary tools, gloves, snacks, and water for this event.  Please wear sturdy shoes and dress for the weather.  Ages 15+ are invited to join us; youth under 18 years of age must be accompanied by an adult. As a thank you, all Operation Wild Lands volunteers will receive a gift card for a free burrito generously donated by our friends at Chipotle!
This event is sponsored by The Open Space Council in partnership with Great Rivers Greenway and REI. Learn more at www.openspaceSTL.org, www.greatriversgreenway.org and www.rei.com.
