Merrill Park Invasive Plant Workshop

The City of Concord’s Park and Recreation Department, Planning Division, Parks and Recreation Advisory Committee, Conservation Commission and the Merrimack River Watershed Council partnered to offer Concord's first invasive plant education and removal workshop for our residents on August 3, 2022.

Over the past decade Concord, like many NH communities have experienced a tremendous growth in the number and amount of invasive plants growing around the community. This hands-on workshop had participants actively learning about Oriental bittersweet, the correct way to remove and control the plant. 

If you missed the workshop, Concord TV captured footage for us and information is included in the video below.
