Help Newport State Park Pull Dame's Rocket

The Newport Wilderness Society is the nonprofit, educational organization serving Newport State Park as its official friends' group. Newport's weed pullers have almost finished their work with garlic mustard and are now turning their attention to dame's rocket at the north end of the park. Work days are Monday, Wednesday and Friday through July 15. We'll meet at 9:15 am at the town park at end of Europe Bay Road. Call Park Office for further information: 920-854-2500.
