Rain date is the following day, at the same time.

Cromwell Valley Park is a wonderful rural park just outside the Beltway on Cromwell Bridge Road. The areas we have worked on in recent years, Beehive Woods and Dogwood Hill, are looking much better, free of major invasives, with new trees and shrubs gaining a foothold. A new project last year was the installation of a deer exclusion fence demonstration to show the effects of excessive deer browsing in the forest.

Our Habitat Restoration Team has a tough ongoing assignment to eliminate non-native invasives from this scenic park, and we need all the help we can get. We have tackled multiflora rose, Japanese barberry, kudzu, garlic mustard, mile a minute, porcelain berry, oriental bittersweet and many others. There is still lots to do.

Tools and refreshments are provided.

Wear/Bring: Suitable protective clothing.
