Help beautify the Pumpkinvine by removing invasive species

You are invited to join other Friends of the Pumpkinvine Nature Trail in removing invasive shrubs, such as Multiflora Rose and Bush Honeysuckle, in the forested region near mile-marker 4.5, west of where the trail meets CR 33. The removal is schedule from 9 a.m. to noon on Saturday, December 13.
Meet at Abshire Park at 9 a.m. to car pool. If you prefer to ride your bike, plan to meet the others near County Road 33 at 9:15 a.m. If you have a spade and/or loppers, please bring those and dress warmly.
If you can help, contact Bob Carrico at rjcarrico1@frontier.com or 574-266-1362. Please give your phone number or e-mail so we can contact you if we have to reschedule in the event of inclement weather.
