Opportunity Details

City Fort Lauderdale Great Air Potato Round-up with Kids Ecology Corps

Calling all volunteers! Get your lassos ready to round up the invasive air potato bulbs in Snyder Park.  The air potato is taking over trees and shrubs, and not allowing native plants the space and light they need to grow.  Once the bulbs are gone, the park will be a better place for native trees and plants to flourish, and migrating birds, butterflies and other wildlife to thrive.

Due to the outdoor activity, it is recommended all volunteers wear a hat, sunscreen, and insect repellent, plus bring their own water and snack.  Volunteers must wear closed-toe shoes and long pants are recommended.
