Join Rock Creek Conservancy and the National Park Service for this invasive plant removal restoration event in Rock Creek Park. Invasive plants are a major threat to our fragile forests, and stopping their spread helps allow for a thriving native understory. Event location directions and information will be sent from the event leader 24 hours before the event.
What to Wear: Please dress appropriately for the work and weather. We recommend wearing sturdy boots or sneakers and long layers, including pants and long sleeves - this ensures safety and reduces likelihood of exposure to nuisances like poison ivy.
What to bring: We recommend bringing water, and snacks if desired. Tools and supplies will be provided. Please bring your own gloves if you have them.
Leader Contact Information: Romy Svoboda (email@example.com)
