While FMCP is home to many native species, invasive plants threaten the growth and development of our wetland environment by decreasing the biodiversity of our native birds, fish, animals, and insects due to less sources of familiar food and shelter being available. As we remove the invasive plants, we make room for native species to recover and thrive, along with beatifying the park.
Take a break from the hustle and bustle of the city by coming to our green haven to clear our gardens and your minds as we restore key park areas to their rightful condition. We welcome people of all ages and all help will be greatly appreciated. No experience necessary!
