Remove Invasive Plants (RiP) Event

Do you like working outside? Join community volunteers in protecting the local environment from invasive plants. This is a continuing project on the fourth Saturday of each month to reclaim the natural area in Benjamin Banneker Park from invasive plants. Please meet the site leader by trail near the bridge over Four Mile Run.

If you have your own garden gloves and tools, please bring them along. Training and additional tools will be provided. Be sure to come dressed for work, wear long pants, long sleeves, and perhaps a hat. You may also want to bring along a water bottle. These events are for volunteers ages 9 to adult. If you are under 18 years old, a parent or guardian will have to sign our volunteer sign-in sheet before you can participate.

Training will be provided at the events.
