In conjunction with American Hiking Society's National Trails Day, Washington Women Outdoors (WWO) partners with Montgomery County Parks on a Weed Warrior Conservation Project led by Meghan Fellows, Weed Warrior Volunteer Coordinator. Our group will work alone or with another group to remove a non-native invasive plant that is in a tree planting area installed about 18 months ago in the Park.
The tree planting area is mowed grass, so it is a very nice site to work on. Participants should wear long pants, closed-toe shoes and long sleeves if possible and bring plenty of water. Tools, gloves, and training will be provided by Meghan and her team. Of course, it is possible this plan may change when the actual growing season begins so as a back-up plan nearby is the removal of non-native vines from trees where steep slopes, uneven footing, and thorny vegetation may be encountered. The plant removal event should last 1-2 hours, depending on the exact project. Following the project, WWO will sponsor a cookout.
