Calling all green thumbs! We need your help. 

If you're looking for a way to get out in nature and give back to the community, help us tackle one of the most invasive species in our District- dame's rocket! The DeKalb Park District is asking volunteers to help eradicate the invasive species dame's rocket (Hesperis Matronalis).

Invasive species are no joke. This plant has been classified as an invasive species because of the ecological harm it causes to the local biodiversity of native habitats.
