Help eradicate invasive parsnip in one of our state parks by participating in the 11th Annual Parsnip Pull at Whitewater State Park, 8 a.m. to Noon, Saturday, June 17. Lunch of Subway Sandwiches will be provided. Volunteers will work in teams to pull wild parsnip from heavy use areas of the park.
We will arrange carpooling closer to the event and will need an early start as the park is around 2 hours from the metro area.
You must wear long pants and a long sleeve shirt to avoid skin contact with the toxic sap of the plant. Heavy rubber gloves will be provided.
To sign up send an email firstname.lastname@example.org (or call 507-932-3007, ext. 226.) to register yourself with the DNR for the activity.
