During this two-part class participants will learn about the non-native invasive plants threatening D.C.’s trees and how to effectively manage them — essentially how to be a tree warrior!
The course consists of two parts on two different days:
Wednesday, June 8 — A classroom session at Casey Trees headquarters
Saturday, June 11— A field session at Rock Creek Park
Classes are led by instructors from Rock Creek National Park, Anacostia Watershed Society, and the Department of Energy & Environment.
By the end of the two sessions, you’ll be able to both identify several common non-native species and know how to safely remove them without damaging the trees and other plants around them.
You can also use your invasive training at future volunteer opportunities!
