**The site leader, Nora Palmatier, is hoping to continue removing English Ivy during this event. The goal is to clear the park of more English Ivy and open up more space for volunteers to plant natives in the understory later this year. Please join them and continue expanding upon the progress they have already made!**

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!
