Rivion team members volunteered their time on a very warm and humid morning participating in the ROOT (Restoring Our Outdoor Treasures) program at the Urban Ecology Center-Menomonee Valley. After a brief introduction to the works of the Urban Ecology Center and a lesson on invasive plants, we started our work along the bike path near the Three Bridges Park pulling thistle and clover. This was a great opportunity to learn about invasive plants in our area and give back to our community as a team!
