Join forces with fellow nature lovers and environmental stewards on Saturday, Feb. 21, for Plant Invaders from Another World, an invasive-plant cleanup event taking place at the Donald E. Davis Arboretum. The event is designed for those who are concerned about the impact of invasive plants on local habitats or would like to learn more about how to manage invasive plants.

Participants should wear close-toed shoes or boots and bring work gloves. Tools will be provided, but participants may bring their own pruners. Plant Invaders from Another World will begin at 8:30 a.m., at the Davis Arboretum Pavilion off Garden Drive and last until noon, and all participants will be treated to a free chili lunch. There is no cost to attend, but registration is requested. To register, send an email to Dee Smith at

The event is sponsored by the Donald E. Davis Arboretum, Facilities Management, Parkerson Mill Creek Project, Office of Sustainability, Alabama Invasive Plant Council, Department of Horticulture and the Alabama Cooperative Extension System. In the event of inclement weather, the alternate date is Feb. 28. For more information, go to this website.
