PARK SERVICE OFFERS EDUCATIONAL PROGRAM
AT KENILWORTH PARK AND AQUATIC GARDENS
ON HOW TO IDENTIFY INVASIVE PLANTS

People aren't the only visitors to our national parks. Many of our flowering plants, butterflies, and birds visit our parks, some traveling great distances. To help them along the way, and discourage invasive species, Kenilworth Park and Aquatic Gardens will offer assistance to apartment dwellers, corporations, home owners and school teachers. A park ranger will identify invasive plants in your area, and make recommendations on what you can plant to aid migratory wildlife.

This is an excellent opportunity for schools to form partnerships with the National Park Service via grants to fund restoration, and turn their open spaces into nature centers of discovery. A park ranger will work with your school to develop educational programs using your own nature centers. Program participants will receive a certificate as a park satellite and a newsletter in spring and fall to keep you apprised of the results of your efforts in park wildlife sightings.

For more information, call the park directly at 202-426-6905.
