Please join the AMS Committee on Environmental Stewardship to help remove invasive plant species from New Orleans City Park's wetlands and bioretention parking lot. AMS will be working with local landscape architecture firm, Dana Brown & Associates, whom designed both of these spaces in City Park. Volunteers are encouraged to wear outdoor working clothes and shoes that can potentially get muddy. Waterproof shoes are encouraged, as some parts of the wetlands may hold up to 1' of water. Sunscreen may be needed, weather permitting, and all other tools will be provided, including bug spray. There is a $25 fee per person to participate, which will cover the cost of transportation and snacks. Interested attendees are invited to sign up for the project when preregistering for the meeting. Register here. The deadline for registration is Wednesday, 16 December. For information on this event, please contact Christine Keane. For those that are participating, plan on meeting in the lobby of Hall D, across from the AMS Registration desk, located on the first level of the convention center at 900 Convention Center Blvd at 8:30am.
