Mini-Oasis Restoration at Fort Slocum

Saturday, May 27,  10:00 AM -  12:00 PM

Join Rock Creek Conservancy and the National Park Service for this 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. Event location, directions, and information will be sent from the event leader 48 hours prior to the event.


When: Saturday, May 27,  10:00 AM -  12:00 PM

Where:  Fort Slocum Park

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:  Romy Svoboda (
