Invasive Plant Removal in Northern Virginia
Arlington Woods located in Arlington Cemetery every 2nd and 4th Saturday of
the month, from 9:30 till 11:45.
Join our team in identifying non-native plant species that are negatively affecting
our National Parks. Reduce the threat of non-native invasive plants, protect rare
species and restore the biological and cultural integrity to Park Service lands.
Invasive plant removal requires walking on uneven and rocky terrain, and using
hand tools (hand-saws, bow-saws, loppers, or hand-clippers) to cut invasive plants.
Additional physical demands include the use of shovels and trowels while planting
native plants, hauling excess debris, and standing for prolonged periods. Please
wear working clothing (long sleeve and boots, etc.), we will provide tools and
gloves but feel free to bring your own.
Arlington Woods is located inside Arlington National Cemetery, accessible from the
George Washington Parkway and metro, blue line.
