The Great Invader Raider Rally and Gainesville Greenway Challenge
The hard work of 15 years of Great Air Potato Round Ups, along with some persistent and hungry beetles, has made quite a dent in the air potato crop! That great news allows us to focus on other challenges in our natural areas. With the momentum and community spirit that has guided the Round-Up for so many years, we proudly announce the first annual Great Invader Raider Rally and Gainesville Greenway Challenge. The Great Invader Raider Rally will take place January 31, 2015. Under trained leadership, volunteers will work to restore pre-assigned natural areas from 9 am to 11 am and then are invited to head to Morningside Nature Center for a celebration including t-shirts, music, prizes, environmental booths and games and food ($). Preregistration for the event is required and opens December 10, 2014. More details about the Gainesville Greenway Challenge are to come, so stay tuned!
