Weed Warriors Committee
Avery Park’s “Weed Warriors” is an informal working group that works to control invasive plant species in our common areas, roadside and forests. Invasive species can overwhelm native plant species by competing directly for space, sun and soil. Many invasive species are introduced plants for horticulture, such as oriental bittersweet, Japanese barberry and English Ivy. Our working group can inform our members on the best choices for landscaping and how to control invasive species and provide information on native species that will thrive in Avery Park.

Assessing the community for invasive plants and educate residents about removing them from the property.
