Phipps Park Invasive Plant Education and Removal

Phipps Park Invasive Plant Education and Removal

Enjoy the camaraderie of a joint  FTA/ FNPS (Florida Native Plant Society-Magnolia Chapter) endeavor for hikers, runners, cyclists, native plant and other wildlife enthusiasts, and anyone else interested in learning and “giving back.” This program is using Elinor Klapp-Phipps Park’s extensive invasion of coral ardisia for a continuing series of hands-on education and removal opportunities.  Each session continues from the previous one during which we will be working in a selected test area of the park.  Learn how to identify and safely eradicate coral ardisia, not only at Phipps Park, but wherever you hike (including the FNST), from experts. Get some great exercise removing these invasive plants in this test section, and feel good about giving back!  Bring water, bug spray, gardening work gloves, and wear shoes appropriate for hiking.  Some tools will be provided, but please bring a clipper and/or a shovel (pointed type is best) if you own them. Lunch will be provided.  Note: this type of activity is not appropriate if you are severely allergic to poison ivy. IvyBlock barrier cream will be provided for those who wish to use it.  The activity begins promptly at 9:30 a.m. at the Meridian trailhead, 4000 N. Meridian Rd. (Youth Sports Complex/baseball fields); the trailhead is located 0.1 mile in, on the left.  [Map:  http://www.talgov.com/Uploads/Public/Documents/parks/pdf/phipps.pdf

    I had to miss this event but I am interested to attend something like this in the future.

    Is this a weekly thing?
    Where can I get information to learn more about the invasive plant species and how to control them?
