Gainesville Greenway Challenge

Gainesville Greenway Challenge logo

Year-round, take the challenge to protect Gainesville’s natural areas! The Gainesville Greenway Challenge (GGC) is a year-round effort to restore the natural habitat in Gainesville by removing invasive plant species that threaten ecosystem health. Join the challenge on the first Saturday of each month and help us to eradicate the region’s most aggressive invasive plants in Gainesville’s nature parks!

Every Thursday, come join us at Give Back Thursdays! Between 9 a.m.-11:30 a.m., we remove a variety of invasive plants including Coral Ardisia, Caesar's Weed and more!

Prizes for the individual and group with the most volunteer hours throughout the year will be awarded at the Great Invader Raider Rally!

For information on the location of these events, look up our weekly events on our Facebook page.
