REGISTRATION FULL - Weed Warrior Workday at Fernwood Local Park

person cutting vines

Save the trees 

Join Weed Warrior Supervisor Yvonne for a non-native, invasive plant removal workday in Fernwood Local Park in Bethesda, MD. We will focus on non-native, invasive vines including Asian bittersweet (Celastrus orbiculatus), porcelainberry (Ampelopsis glandulosa var. brevipedunculata), and English ivy (Hedera helix). Native Virginia creeper and poison ivy are also present and beneficial, so we will avoid those.

Please wear long pants that cover your ankles, long sleeves, and sturdy, closed-toed shoes. Bring gloves, pruners, small folding hand saws and/or loppers if you have them. Gloves and tools 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 15 people.

This workday is pre-approved for MCPS SSL hours. Volunteers must be 16 years or older to join this event.

*If you or anyone in your household are sick, waiting for Covid test results, and/or have tested positive for Covid (regardless of vaccination status) you are not eligible to volunteer at this time.*

All volunteers must register online: Click here to register for the event
