It’s time for one of Gainesville’s annual traditions! Hundreds of people come together to remove invasive plant species from our natural areas. Individuals and groups can volunteer to kick-off the year-long Gainesville Greenway Challenge invasive species pulls. Under trained leadership, volunteers will work to restore pre-assigned natural areas from 9 am to 11 am. After a morning of removing invasive species, volunteers are invited to a Victory Celebration at Morningside Nature Center with t-shirts, music, prizes, environmental booths and games and food.

Remember to dress to be outdoors. There may be no restroom facilities until you arrive at the celebration, so please plan accordingly. Totally free but pre-registration is required at:
