Escape the Summer sun's heat and join us in the lush growth of the lower region of Colman Park as we continue to reclaim the area from overgrowth of invasive plants like Himalayan Blackberry, English Ivy, Holly, Laurel and other non-native plants.

Your volunteer efforts will help us maintain a beautiful urban forested area for all to enjoy. more
