Theodore Roosevelt Island Invasive Plant Work Days

Theodore Roosevelt Island  2022 Work Days

Third Sundays, 10 am – Noon

No work days in July, August, or December

Site Leaders:  Erica Shifflett, Heidi Moyer, Stephanie Martin

The Arlington Regional Master Naturalist (ARMN) Park Stewards and National Park Service Weed Warriors welcome volunteers to help us restore native habitat and stamp out invasive non-native plants on Theodore Roosevelt Island.

This work is vitally important to protecting the island’s natural areas, including plants that have co-evolved with birds and other local wildlife over thousands of years that are being overwhelmed by fast-growing introduced species that strangle trees and eliminate food sources.

As a volunteer, you will:

  • Work outdoors in woodlands and along walking paths
  • Learn about invasives and native flora and fauna from activity leaders
  • Help remove non-native invasive plants, including saving TRI trees from smothering vines
  • Experience the satisfaction of making a lasting difference in the health of this Park Service gem

Wear work gloves, long pants and sleeves, and sturdy shoes (be prepared for a little mud). We will follow COVID protocols in effect at the time.  Bring pruners and hand saws if you have them. (Limited extras will be available.) Volunteers under 16 must be accompanied by an adult; volunteers under 18 must be signed in by an adult.

Meet at the stone wall on the parking lot side of the footbridge.  Parking is tight at TRI, so consider biking or walking across the footbridge from Rosslyn.

Pre-registration is required.  Register below.
