Non-Native Invasive Plant Management Workshop
June 3 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm
The Gunpowder Valley Conservancy is looking for volunteers, age 18+, to join GVC for our Non-native Invasive (NNI) Plant Management workshop, a great part of our NNI Program! It’s easy to participate:
- Attend an in field training and ID session to learn the basics of the NNI problem and plant ID and physical management methods
- Practice what you’ve learned with your classmates in an instructor-led field experience immediately following the training
- Sign up to lead your own volunteer-powered NNI removal events with support from GVC (not mandatory to attend workshop)
Date: Saturday, June 3, 2023 1:00-4:00 PM
Meeting Location: Planting site at corner of Dulaney Valley Rd and Loch Raven Dr (across from Peerce’s Restaurant on Dulaney Valley Road). Please follow GVC event signs and park in the small lot on the right hand side of the road, it is shortly after turning left to stay on Dulaney Valley Road, past Peerce’s Restaurant. Address for Peerce’s: 12460 Dulaney Valley Road Phoenix, MD 21131
**Please note that we are not going to be parking in the lot of the restaurant- it is just a land mark to help you find the site!
What to wear: Think PROTECTION—long pants, long sleeves, close-toed shoes, hat, sunscreen for any uncovered parts, and insect repellant that is effective against ticks. Please note that some of the areas we will be working in may be wet, have tall grass and vines, etc., so wear appropriate shoes.
