Fewer foreign Invasive Species + More Natives = a Beautiful Nature Escape in Roanoke Park.
We have to Make It Happen.

The park has some areas left too bare after removal of shrub honeysuckle. So we're all about getting some good natives growing instead!

The Roanoke Park Conservancy and generous neighbors bought nearly $500 worth of Missouri Native Seeds for this effort. Additionally, several hundred dollars worth of other seeds have been collected locally.
