Volunteers are invited to come out to help remove invasive Honeysuckle is spreading quickly across many of our parks and trails, crowding out Missouri's native plants. Volunteer efforts are critical to help control this invasive plant in order to enable native species to grow and flourish. Training, supplies, lunch and refreshments will be provided to volunteers.

Those interested in volunteering can choose to work at one of two cleanup sites:

  • Blanchette Park in the Boschert Greenway in St. Charles. (Meet at 1900 Randolph St, St Charles, MO 63301, at pavilion 4.) Ages 10+ are invited to join us; youth under 18 years of age must be accompanied by an adult.

Brightside St. Louis, City of St. Louis, Missouri Department of Conservation, Missouri Master Naturalist Great Rivers Chapter and Missouri Botanical Garden are teaming up to support urban monarch conservation efforts and the creation of a Butterfly Byway along the St. Louis riverfront. Volunteers will be planting a new pollinator garden at the Mary Meachum Visitor Center located along the Riverfront Trail of the Mississippi Greenway. (Meet at 100 East Prairie Ave. St. Louis, MO 63147.) Children are welcome to join us; youth under 18 years of age must be accompanied by an adult.

A public service day will be held on Saturday, September 24th 2016 starting at 8:30 am at Riverlands Bird Sanctuary, 301 Riverlands Way, West Alton, Mo.

The service day will include trash cleanups, plantings, and trail work. All necessary equipment for the cleanup will be supplied.

There will be a free lunch for volunteers, followed by opportunities to hike on your public lands at the Confluence.
