Please visit the new page to apply.
The National Capital Region Invasive Plant Management Team and the Friends of Anacostia Park are hosting a non-native plant removal event on Saturday, August 27th. This event is a volunteer effort to help rescue the natural environment from non-native invasive species through the hands-on removal of especially harmful trees, vines, and flowering plants.
During the event, participants will learn how to identify and control several non-native plants that are threatening our natural communities. This event will provide more habitat for native plants and animals to thrive. Help us restore and protect natural areas in our community by removing non-native plants!
Meet at the Anacostia River Trail by the entrance of Kingman and Heritage Islands: https://goo.gl/maps/FEqc8fxo89sTAJnT9 . All supplies and instruction will be provided.
