Elephant Ear Removal: Every 1st and 3rd Wednesdays:If you’d like to get outdoors and work with fun people, join the gang removing invasive Elephant Ears at the wetlands boardwalk. Every first and third Wednesday from 4:30 until about 7 PM we spend some quality time trying to make a small dent in this very invasive species. The goal is to eliminate enough ears to allow some of the natives a better chance to gain a foothold in areas where they've been severely crowded out.

Gloves, tools and training are supplied. Boots are recommended, as well as long pants if you are sensitive
to the sap of the ears. It’s shady work, near the water and a nice chance to accomplish something while
enjoying the beauty of the wetlands. -Leah
