Invasive plants pose a huge threat to the biodiversity of native flora and fauna in ecosystems throughout the world.  Celebrate Earth Day (held annually on April 22) on a field trip to Ridley Creek State Park with the park’s DCNR naturalist who will help you learn to identify local native and invasive plants along the park’s trails.  Participants are welcome to bring work gloves and hand clippers for some actual hands-on experience battling invasive plants along the way while learning how to enhance your own backyard habitat.

All ages are welcome, and registration is not required. This hike will last two hours and cover about 2 miles. Meet at the Hunting Hill Mansion (also the park office) upper parking lot.

Restrooms are available on site.
