Lake Wilson Invasive Pull & Cleanup: Pick Up Where You Play

Saturday, November 4, 2023

Please join Pack Rat Outdoor Center and the City of Fayetteville for a fun morning of stewardship activities as we wrap up the fall volunteer season at Lake Wilson!  Volunteers have been focused on removing invasive bush honeysuckle from the riparian areas around Lake Wilson and are making great headway in the effort to prevent this plant from spreading further throughout the park.  We will continue these efforts, and will also provide litter cleanup supplies for those who would like to assist in cleaning up the park and surrounding county roads. (Tools and supplies provided for all volunteer activities, please wear closed-toe shoes.)  

Agenda:  The morning will start with pastries and coffee, followed by the volunteer activities.

RSVPs are appreciated! Please email to RSVP.

Directions: The park is located at 4668 S Lake Wilson Road. From Fayetteville, take Morningside Drive south from 15th Street for approximately two miles. Morningside Drive becomes City Lake Road; turn left on Wilson Hollow Road. Follow the gravel road over the White River, then turn left on Lake Wilson Road.  Event check-in is on the dam.

This event is part of Pick Up Where You Play, a series of cleanups happening in Washington and Benton Counties this fall. All participants 18 and older will be entered to win a grand prize of a two-night cabin stay and float trip for 4 people at Gracie's Canoe and Camp in Pineville, Mo. on the Elk River!  Learn more about Pick Up Where You Play and see a full listing of events.
