5th Annual Air Potato Mega-Raid!
Saturday, January 25th, 2014 9:30 AM-11:30 AM*
(* A morning activity, but exact times may vary by specific site.)
Air Potato vines grow FAST and are blanketing shrubs and trees and covering our natural areas.
Please join us in tackling one of Central Florida’s biggest pest plants, help the environment, and have LOTS of fun!
We need volunteers to help us gather the "potatoes" that fall from the vines to keep them from sprouting this next year.
Find the most unusual shape! Look for the largest one!
Gather the most and become an environmental hero!
Bring friends, family, members of an organization you belong to. Help us by sending this link to others! Youth are welcome to participate and get volunteer credit.
We are holding activities at a variety of natural areas throughout Central Florida. Sign up for one location by getting a ticket below. FREE sign up. No need to print your ticket or bring it to the site.
Please bring gardening gloves, a mop bucket or 5 gallon bucket and drinking water (gardening tools are optional).
