Partner Event: Weed Warrior Training
The National Park Service is holding a Weed Warriors Training to teach volunteers how to properly identify and remove invasive species within APPROVED areas of the C&O Canal National Historical Park.
The training will start with a presentation indoors and, following a lunch break, include some time outside for demonstrations and plant identification. Certification and Volunteer Service Agreements will be provided to those that complete the training, as well as access to online resources compiled for specific species and sections of the park.
Participants are asked to bring a lunch and wear suitable shoes. The parking fee at Great Falls Tavern will be waived for those attending this training.
There are a limited number of spaces, so RSVP as soon as possible! Email firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve a spot.
