What is it?

The smackdown is a family-friendly event to control invasive plants.  We will be targeting Tikishla Park area chokecherry (European bird cherry), an invader which degrades moose and salmon habitat.  By removing these invaders, we will allow native plants and healthy habitats to come back in Anchorage parks.

Volunteers will work with leaders who are members of the Anchorage Cooperative Invasive Species Management Area (Municipality of Anchorage, BLM, Forest Service, and others).  We will supply all tools required, but if you have work gloves you can bring, please do.  The smackdown will be fun, with prizes, and free lunch!

How do I get involved?

To volunteer, please register below and answer the questions on the next page.  You can form a team or join a team at the event.  The work is best suited for older children and adults, but younger children are welcome to come and observe.  All children must be accompanied by an adult.  We'll see you there!
