Sponsoring Organization: Savage River Watershed Association
Adult volunteers are needed to continue control efforts of Japanese spiraea and garlic mustard in the Bear Pen Run area of Savage River State Forest. Bear Pen is designated as a Type 1 Wildland and like other natural areas around the State is threatened by a variety of exotic invasive species. Kerrie Kyde, Invasive Plant Specialist with the Maryland Wildlife & Heritage Service, is providing technical support. Wade Dorsey, Savage River State Forest acting manager, is providing work tools. Mary Ironside, Big Run & New Germany State Park manager, is providing free camping the night before for any out-of-town volunteers. The Savage River Watershed Association is coordinating the project and providing snacks and drinks for volunteers.
For more details or to volunteer: email Savage River Watershed Association at SRWAdirector@gmail.com or call Ron Boyer, SRWA invasive species removal coordinator, at 301-895-3686.
