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. Date - every 2nd and 4th Saturday of the month Time - 9:30am till 11:45pm.

Directions
Arlington House is located inside Arlington National Cemetery. From Washington DC you can drive to the cemetery by crossing the Memorial Bridge. In Virginia access to the cemetery is from the George Washington Memorial Parkway.
