On Cinco de Mayo, Stuart Law Firm took part in the Raleigh Parks & Recreation Department’s Invasive Species Removal Project in Dorothea Dix Park and later gathered to celebrate over a festive lunch. The Raleigh Parks, Recreation, and Cultural Resources Department maintains more than 10,000 acres of parkland, which consists of approximately 220 parks and 120 miles of Capital Area Greenway System. A major area of concern that threatens the Raleigh Parks System is invasive plant species. These exotic plants threaten the natural ecosystem, limit visibility, and affect safety in all our parks and greenways. Preventing, removing, and monitoring for new infestations are important steps to maintain ecosystem and human health.
A big thank you to all of those who participated and to the Raleigh Parks Department for their great work!
