Mission Statement

The George Washington Memorial Parkway is home to over 200 rare plants found nowhere else in the world! Invasive plants are rapidly threatening this biodiversity, mature native trees, and property values. The National Park Service is asking you to help control invasive plants in the park. Training is free. All tools and learning materials will be provided free of charge, bring a snack, water, and wear work clothes for file study classes, sign up by calling Colin Davis, 571-305-3218, or email Colin_davis@nps.gov. Theodore Roosevelt Island is just north of Route 50 near Rosslyn and can only be accessed by going northbound on George Washingotn Memorial Parkway. Please meet at Monument at 10am or the pedestrian bridge is arriving early.

Description

organizer information In the 1930s, landscape architects transformed Mason’s Island from neglected, overgrown farmland into Theodore Roosevelt Island, a memorial to America’s 26th president. They conceived a "real forest" designed to mimic the natural forest that once covered the island. Today miles of trails through wooded uplands and swampy bottomlands honor the legacy of a great outdoorsman and conservationist.
