2nd Sat. Ivy Pulls at Lacey Woods, in partnership with Arlington RiP

Every 2nd Saturday from 10am-12pm, NVCT is co-sponsoring invasive removals at Lacey Woods Park in Arlington! We'll meet on the Frederick St. (west) side of the park and get an orientation from Nora Palmatier, Arlington Tree Steward and dedicated RiP volunteer, before heading off to the project of the day. In 2 years of steady work all the ivy has been removed off the trees, and now we are slowly reclaiming the forest floor in targeted areas. Solomon's seal, wild ginger, and sensitive fern are just a few of the native species that are coming back as the ivy is removed. Join us, and help save nearby nature!

    As always Nora did a great job leading this event. It is very rewarding to participate in an ongoing project where you can see progress each month, plus we get to meet such a wide range of people! This Saturday, for example, we had volunteers from Americorps, students from Master Naturalists, local neighbors, and Tree Stewards all working side by side. It's a great opportunity to make connections and make a difference at the same time.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
