CANCELLED: Invasive Removal - Trail 9
By Rock Creek Conservancy

Invasive Removal at Trail 9

Sunday, July 24 from 10:00am - 12:00pm


Join Rock Creek Conservancy, the National Park Service, and Weed Warrior Sydney Shaw for an invasive plant removal restoration event in Rock Creek Park. Invasive plants are a major threat to our fragile forests, and stopping their spread helps allow for a thriving native understory. Thank you for helping us to protect Rock Creek!


The event is free but registration is required: REGISTER HERE


Activity: Volunteers will participate in a socially-distant invasive removal in Rock Creek Park.


Please register yourself and each member of your group INDIVIDUALLY. For the health and safety of our volunteers and leaders we cannot accept walk-ups or any groups that do not have all members registered. Thank you for keeping us all safe this cleanup season!


When: Sunday July 24 from 10:00am to 12:00pm.


Where: Trail 9 - volunteers will meet at the Grove 2 parking lot. An email with directions and safety information will be sent to registered participants prior to the event.


What to Wear: Please dress appropriately for the work and weather. We recommend wearing sturdy boots or sneakers and long layers, including pants and long sleeves - this ensures safety and reduces likelihood of exposure to nuisances like poison ivy.


What to bring: We recommend bringing water, and snacks if desired. Tools and supplies will be provided. Please bring your own gloves if you have them.


Leader Contact Information: Sydney Shaw (


Weather/Cancellation Policy: All participants will be notified via email before the event start time if an event is canceled due to inclement weather.
