REGISTRATION CLOSED – Weed Warrior Workday at Rock Creek SVU6 (Parklawn Community Garden)

Save the trees and the stream valley ecosystem 

Join Maria, Weed Warrior Supervisor, for a non-native, invasive plant removal workday in Rock Creek Stream Valley Unit 6. We will focus on non-native, invasive vines, especially wisteria (Wisteria sinensis and Wisteria floribunda).  Native Virginia creeper and poison ivy are also present and beneficial, so we will avoid those.

We will meet in Rock Creek Stream Valley Unit 6, at the Parklawn Community Garden (12718 Veirs Mill Road, Rockville). Instructions will be sent after you register.

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 20 people.

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

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