Weed Warrior Workday at Cabin John Local Park

volunteer in the park working on non-native invasive removal

Join us for an Earth Day Weekend Garlic Mustard Pull 

Join Mark, Weed Warrior Supervisor, for a non-native, invasive plant removal event at Cabin John Local Park, 7401 MacArthur Blvd., Cabin John, MD.  We will meet at the trailhead near the playground. We will focus on pulling and bagging garlic mustard (Alliaria petiolata), a biennial non-native, invasive plant that smells like garlic!

Please wear clothes that can get dirty (including long pants that cover your ankles and long sleeves), rain gear as necessary, and sturdy, closed-toed shoes. Bring work gloves, a few sturdy trash bags, and bug spray, if you have them. Gloves and bags are available to borrow if you don’t have your own. No power tools or machetes allowed. Please bring water to drink.

Please note: Court Ordered Volunteer Hours can’t be granted through this workday.

This event is capped at 25 registrants.

This workday is pre-approved for MCPS SSL hours and is open for all ages. Volunteers 14 and under must be accompanied by a registered, responsible adult.
