Anchorage Cooperative Weed Management Area (ANC-CWMA)

BLM Team Leader with pulled European Bird Cherries

4th Annual

Anchorage Weed Smackdown

Valley of the Moon Park
Saturday, August 9, 2014

10 AM to 1 PM
Rain or Shine

What is a weed smackdown?  The smackdown is a family-friendly event to control invasive plants.  We will be in Valley of the Moon Park targeting European bird cherry, an invader which degrades moose and salmon habitat.  By removing these invaders, we will allow native plants and healthy habitats to come back along Chester Creek.

Volunteers will work with leaders who are members of the Anchorage Cooperative Weed Management Area.  We will supply all tools required, but if you have work gloves you can bring, please do.  The smackdown will be fun, with prizes, and free lunch!

How do I get involved?  To volunteer, please register here.  You can form a team or join a team at the event.  The work is best suited for older children and adults, but younger children are welcome to come and observe.  To help us plan, please register by August 7, 2014.  We'll see you there!
