We met at Hammock Park for a day of air potato pickups. I recruited kids from my 4-H club as well as Defenders of Nature. We learned all about air potatoes and why they hurt the environment. We learned what to look for in the woods and how to remove them.
We had an area marked off for our group. We looked high for dead vines and then scoured the ground finding all the fallen air potatoes.
We filled bag after bag.
This is just part of our collection.
We willed two truck loads! What a great way to help out a local park. Invasive species are no fun.
