Fall Trails Series - Invasive Plant Pull, SUNY Canton Trail

Event date and time
October 13, 2017 - 4:00 PM to 6:00 PM


The Canton Recreation Department is partnering with Nature Up North to provide a Canton Trails Series this fall. Join us each Friday afternoon in October as we feature one of Canton’s beautiful trails! Each Trails Series event will begin with a guided activity (30-45minutes) after which you will be invited to continue to explore the trail on your own. This family friendly program is open to all, and children must be accompanied by a responsible adult.

Join us for the second week of the Fall Trails Series, as we enjoy a lively afternoon together removing invasive plants along the SUNY Canton Cross Country Trails. This event is open to all ages, and gardening gloves and bags will be provided. The afternoon will begin with an introduction to local invasive species and about 30-45 minutes of plant removal, after which you will be welcome to continue helping or to explore the trail on your own.
