Save our Native Species - Weed Warrior Workshops

Friday, July 15, 2022

Be a hero!  and learn service learning hours at the same time. 

This area is home to great blue herons, kingfishers, Eastern towhees, bluebirds, red-spotted purples, spicebush swallowtails, luna moths, Eastern box turtles, crayfish, and many other spectacular wildlife species. These beautiful creatures need native plants, shrubs, and trees to complete their life cycles, but invasive woody species are crowding out our native plant species.  The invasive plants are disrupting the web of life!  Come help us rescue our native species in Windy Ridge Park!  We meet at 10 am on the third Friday from June through August at the park entrance, which is accessed through East West Park, 1115 Prospect Rd. 

Please wear long pants that cover your ankles, long sleeve shirt and sturdy, closed-toed shoes. Also, bring rain gear if it looks drizzly. If you have them, please bring Weed Wrenches, hand saws, gloves, pruners, and loppers. Gloves and tools are available to borrow if you don’t have your own. No power tools or machetes allowed. Please also bring water, snacks, and bug spray.  

Contact Ashley Collier or Nancy Hernandez at 301-829-1424 with questions or if you are under age 16.
