Weed Warrior: Invasive Plant Management Training May 18 or June 15

Save to Favorites

ORGANIZATION: National Park Service

The George Washington Memorial Parkway is home to over 200 rare plants found nowhere else in the world! Rapidly spreading invasive species are threatening the park's biodiversity, damaging mature native trees and decreasing property values. Under the direction of NPS, volunteers will work to safely remove invasive species from the park. Target species include English ivy, amur honeysuckle, porcelain berry, multiflora Rose, mile-a-minute, and others. Volunteers will complete four hours of classroom and field training to learn species identification, proper control techniques, and safe practices. All volunteers will be issued tools, wear a safety vest in the field, and record their work. No experience necessary, all training and equipment provided. Once you have completed training you can choose to work independently, team up with other Weed Warrior volunteers, or participate in group events.
