Weed Warrior Workday at Long Branch-Arliss Neighborhood Park (Behind Library)

Weed Warrior Volunteer

Save the trees and the Long Branch Stream Valley ecosystem 

Join Barbara, Weed Warrior Supervisor, for a non-native, invasive plant removal workday at Long Branch-Arliss Neighborhood Park.

We will meet at the Long Branch Library Parking Lot (8800 Garland Ave).

We will focus on non-native, invasive plants including porcelainberry (Ampelopsis glandulosa var. brevipedunculata), wintercreeper (Euonymus fortunei), English ivy (Hedera helix), wineberry (Rubus phoenicolasius), and bush honeysuckle (mainly Lonicera maackii). 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, flathead screwdrivers, weed wrenches/uprooters, 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 10 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 responsible adult.
