The Kirkwood Hackathon @ Kirkwood Park is this month for Invasive Bush Honeysuckle.
If anyone from the Association is looking for volunteer/outreach opportunities they can read more about the event below.
FREE Kirkwood Park From Invasive Bush Honeysuckle
Kirkwood Park has more than 33 acres of land being invaded by bush honeysuckle. This invasion prevents native plants, trees, and wildlife from accessing the needed resources to survive. You can help free Kirkwood Park from the spread of invasive honeysuckle and see what a healthy Missouri landscape looks like. Follow the action as it unfolds on the Kirkwood Parks and Recreation Department’s Facebook Page.
Volunteering your time at the Hackathon is one of the many ways to STOP the spread of invasive bush honeysuckle.
Here’s how you can help:
- Participate in the Hackathon to clear invasive bush honeysuckle from Kirkwood Park.
- Learn about the danger of invasive bush honeysuckle and effective removal techniques.
- Participate in more Honeysuckle Sweep Week events.
- Help spread the word about the Hackathon.
A celebration for volunteers will close the Hackathon on Friday, March 10, at the Lions’ Amphitheatre in Kirkwood Park.
When is the Hackathon?
Monday, March 6, thru Friday, March 10, from 7:00 am to 6:00 pm. There are many shifts to choose from or you can stay all day. Don’t see a shift that works with your schedule? Simply create one that works for you by contacting the Volunteer Coordinator
