Invasive plant removal, Sklar Park, Merrimack NH

Interested in taking back a section of Merrimack River waterfront from invasive plants? The Town of Merrimack and MRWC are hosting an event at Sklar Waterfront Park, 14 Griffin Street, on Sunday, April 23 from 10 am to noon. We will be focusing our primary effort on an infestation of Burning Bush plants.
Widely popular as an ornamental lawn plant, Burning Bush is a beautiful but extremely prolific bush that can establish itself well in damp, shady environments, as it has in the understory of trees at Sklar Waterfront Park. Bushes can grow up to 20 feet in height if left unattended, and choke out native plants.
Help us assist the Town of Merrimack with this project. A short training will be provided along with tools, gloves, and other supplies. Wear footwear appropriate for forest, mud, and standing water.
Registration is required. Please register by clicking on this link.
Rain Date, Sunday April 30 from 10 am to noon.
