11am, meet at the Make-A-Scene Stage / Palmer Pavilion

Join Palmer Soil and Water Conservation District for the 9th annual Weed Smackdown! We will meet at the Palmer Pavilion at 11am and pull weeds around the downtown Palmer area. It is a great way to help rid the city of invasive plants, get some exercise, sunshine, meet some other great volunteers and be entered into a raffle to win some great prizes. Music and food will be provided after the pull.

This event is family friendly and we will teach you which plants to pull and which to avoid. Bring gloves if you have them or we will provide some. Dress appropriately for the weather. Contact us at palmerswcd@gmail.com with questions!

1-6pm, Ken Soule Ball Field (by Borough buildings)

Ask kite questions, and watch BIG kites fly, maybe try your hand at flying! Please observe physical distancing guidelines and understand that if the weather doesn’t cooperate, the kites won’t either.
