Spring in Alaska means dandelions. Denali’s “Dandelion Demolition” volunteer event is Saturday, June 19, 9 am-1 pm. Participants will learn the difference between native dandelions and invasive dandelions in the park and spend the morning demolishing the invaders! This is a great opportunity to learn how invasive species can harm the park's ecosystem and why it is so important to help native species thrive on the fragile tundra.

Volunteers who do not mind getting their hands dirty and who want to help maintain a part of thisspecial place are encouraged to participate.

  • Volunteers will use hand tools to properly dig up invasive dandelions and complete the project. The NPS will provide training, tools and safety equipment.
  • Everyone will need to sign up ahead of time and volunteers should come prepared for a moderate workday with water, lunch, snacks, clothing layers and rain gear.
  • All Dandelion Demolition volunteers will receive a thank you gift from the park.

For more information or to register for Dandelion Demolition, please call the Denali National Park Volunteer Office at 907-683-9504.
