Carmel Clay Parks & Recreation to Host Hounds & Honeysuckle Volunteer Event


Carmel, Ind. (March 7, 2023) – Support dogs and the environment at Carmel Clay Parks & Recreation’s (CCPR) Hounds & Honeysuckle volunteer event on Thursday, March 23 from 4-6 p.m. at Central Dog Park, 1425 E 116th Street. 

The woods adjacent to Central Dog Park are filled with honeysuckle. Honeysuckle is an invasive species, meaning it harms the ecosystem by preventing native plants from growing. Honeysuckle is known to prevent wildflowers and young trees from receiving sunlight on the forest floor, as well as depriving other native plants of much-needed water and nutrients.  

At the Hounds & Honeysuckle event, volunteers will remove invasive honeysuckle. Volunteers can also win prizes! All participants will be entered to win a prize pack from local pet vendors. Bring an item donation(s) for the Humane Society for Hamilton County (HSHC) to get a second entry for the prize drawing. Click here to view the HSHC donation wish list. Monetary donations will not be accepted.
