What do the Friends of Malcolmson Eco-Park do?

The Friends of Malcolmson Eco-Park are very active throughout the year in the park. During the past 20 years, the Friends have removed tons of garbage, planted thousands of native wildflowers and trees, designed a trail network, enhanced park wetland areas and provided environmental educational opportunities to local schools. Each spring, the Friends host their flagship fundraiser, a plant sale featuring native species of trees and shrubs and aquatic plants.
