Volunteer Opportunity: Invasive Species Control at Bacon Ridge Natural Area Weekly Workday

July 24 @ 8:00 am - 11:00 am

Free

Help us protect Bacon Ridge Natural Area by joining us for weekly workdays to remove invasive plant species along the trails.

Scenic Rivers is excited to announce the launch of our new Invasive Species Control Program at Bacon Ridge Natural Area. This new program is made possible by funding from Chaney Enterprises Foundation and the Community Foundation of Anne Arundel County.

Beginning Thursday, May 20, and continuing every Thursday morning throughout the summer (and some Saturdays), we’ll gather with small groups of volunteers to clear invasive plant species from along the trails.

Volunteers will be working on designated trail sections to remove specified invasive plant species. Volunteers will be trained in how to identify and remove the invasive plant species.

To participate, volunteers must:

  • Be 16 years or older;
  • Bring their own work gloves. Sturdy, leather work gloves are recommended; and
  • Be able to hike up to 2 miles to get to designated work areas.

Volunteers may sign up for as many weekly workdays as they are available. Teams and group signups are encouraged! Saturday workdays can be arranged if there is enough interest.

Learn more and register for the days you’re available to help via the registration link below.
