Air Potato Rodeo and Park Clean-Up in Palatka, February 10

Date: February 10, 2018

Time: 9:00 am

The Air Potato Rodeo and Park Clean-Up is an annual park beautification day and resource management project held to help control the invasive air potato vine (Dioscorea Bulbifera) that is found at Ravine Gardens. Participants will assist park staff and volunteers in the collection of the potato-like tubers in efforts to control the sprouting and spread of the vine.

YOU HAVE MADE A DIFFERENCE! Previous events and volunteer work has been so successful that the number of tubers is now limited. To keep this annual event going, volunteers will also be hunting down trash and other invasive exotics.

All ages are invited to participate. Prizes will be awarded for various categories, such as largest potato and most golf balls found.

The first 100 volunteers who register on Eventbrite by 2/2/2017 will be guaranteed a free t-shirt when they check-in onsite for the event. Remaining shirts will be available to volunteers on a first come-first served basis during check-in on the day of the event.

A pizza lunch will be provided for all participants after the event.

Trash bags and tools will be provided. We are asking the participants to bring their own gardening gloves if possible.

Participants should wear long sleeves and pants, as well as closed-toe shoes. Participants should bring a reusable water bottle, bug spray and sunscreen.
