Natural Areas Volunteer Day
October 16 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm EDT
Join VCPA staff in maintaining a biodiverse forest through the removal of non-indigenous plant species while learning about forest ecology.
Non-indigenous plants such as angelica tree and glossy buckthorn threaten the health of the mature deciduous forests in the Woodlawn Woodland. Join VCPA staff as we aim to remove these species.
We will meet in front of the Woodlawn Playground at 9am, and promptly walk into the woods from there. The walk in to the worksite is approximately 5 minutes long. Make sure to wear long pants, sturdy closed-toe shoes, and bring lots of water! All other tools will be provided. No prior experience needed.
