Details:

Friends of the Scioto Run Nature Trail is a volunteer-run group that supports the Hilliard Recreation and Parks system to remove invasive plant species and debris from the park. Their goal is to restore the natural habitat of the park and create a beautiful space for everyone to enjoy. 

 

Join Besa and Friends of the Trail to support our environment! As a volunteer, you'll help remove honeysuckle and mustard weed plants, spray the removed plants to prevent them from repopulating, and plant natives plant species.

 

Friends of the Trail will provide gardening gloves and gardening tools for the removal projects, and we'll also practice social distancing. You are required to bring their own mask or face covering, Friends of the Trail will not be providing any. Minors are also required to bring and wear face masks.

 

The health and safety of volunteers is a priority. If you are sick, over the age of 50, or have a chronic health condition, it is in your best interest to stay home. Click here for more information about COVID-19.
