About Air Potato Rodeo

Ea4d9533a90e38f78c34f28ca48631a2171ff09b

The Air Potato Rodeo is an annual park beautification day and resource management project held to help control the air potato vine (Dioscorea Bulbifera) that is widespread at Ravine Gardens. Controlling this pest plant is crucial in maintaining the historic beauty of the formal gardens in the park. Air Potato wranglers will assist park staff and volunteers in the collection of the potato-like tubers in efforts to control the sprouting and spread of the vine.

All ages are invited to enjoy a day of resource management fun, refreshments and community involvement. Prizes will be given for the largest potato, smallest potato and the most unusually shaped potato, as well as the most golf balls collected. Admission into the park is free to participants and the first 100 volunteers to check-in the day of the event will receive a free t-shirt.

Gloves, trash bags and tools will be provided. Participants should wear long sleeves and pants, as well as closed-toe shoes. Participants should bring a reusable water bottle, bug spray and sun screen.
