We need your help controlling invasive species at the beloved Rocky River Nature Park!

The primary activity of this workday will be removing invasive species such as invasive olive and Chinese Privet to enhance foraging and nesting areas for native wildlife and migratory species. Participants should wear long pants, close-toed shoes and gear that you don't mind getting dirty in. We will provide tools and gloves.


About the Property

Rocky River Nature Park is a 131.9-acre free and publicly accessible park protected in 2016 in partnership with Anderson University. Throughout the park, visitors enjoy a matrix of bottomland forest and beaver-maintained wetlands which host over 168 species of passerine and migratory birds throughout the year. A population of the rare Swamp Rabbit (Sylvilagus palustris) is also known to inhabit the floodplain forests of the park. This year marks the second year of active habitat restoration at the park.
