FIRESTONE, Colo. – St. Vrain State Park wants your help in fighting invasive species, which are non-native organisms that wreak havoc on native ecosystems throughout Colorado. At St. Vrain State Park, there are over a dozen plants and animals that are invasive. In order to protect our ecosystems from these harmful organisms, we need to learn to identify and combat them where and when we can. Come learn how to be an eco-warrior with this fun and informative program! This event will take place on Friday, July 8 at 6 p.m.
Participants should meet at the camper services building near Mallard Pond. The event is free, but all visitors must purchase a parks pass before entering the park.
