Native Plant Garden Sign Reveal

 In News

Creativity and a new sign bring invasive plant awareness to the Native Plant Garden in Cordova.

On a sunny Thursday, June 13th, 2024 we hosted a fun, family-friendly event at the Native Plant Garden near Odiak Pond in Cordova as part of Alaska’s Invasive Species Awareness Week (AKISAW). The event featured a special “unveiling” of a beautiful new sign created by our former interns Mia Siebenmorgen and Samaya Faber that will inform visitors about native and invasive plants in the area.

Thank you to everyone who came out and enjoyed fun games and activities for kids and to the kids-at-heart who helped weed the garden. Participants were given free native plant seeds and cheat sheets for how to handle Cordova’s most invasive plants, Orange hawkweed and Reed canarygrass.

And thank you to our partners City of Cordova – Government and U.S. Forest Service for making this garden and signage possible.
