Weed Warrior Workday at Kensington Stream Valley Park (Kensington Pkwy & Littledale Rd)

Volunteers with cut vines

Save the trees and stream valley

Join Weed Warrior Supervisors Chuck and Katherine for a non-native, invasive plant removal event in Kensington Parkway Stream Valley Park, alongside Silver Creek. We will meet at the intersection of Kensington Pkwy & Littledale Rd. 

We will focus on non-native, invasive vines including Asian bittersweet (Celastrus orbiculatus), English ivy (Hedera helix), Japanese honeysuckle (Lonicera japonica), and porcelainberry (Ampelopsis glandulosa var. brevipedunculata). 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 under 16 are not permitted to use tools, so if you are under 16, please email the Weed Warrior supervisor ahead of time to see whether they will have meaningful work for you to do.  Volunteers 14 and under must be accompanied by a registered, responsible adult.
