Habitat Restoration & Invasive Weed Removal
Join the City of Falls Church Habitat Restoration Team in restoring the local ecosystem in City parks. We will be removing damaging invasive plants as well as planting natives that benefit our local birds, butterflies, and other pollinators.
We have one outreach event in April and three restoration events scheduled for Spring 2023. We are limiting each event to 40 people, so we are asking you to pre-register with this sign-up genius form: Spring23HRT. Tools, single-use gloves, water, and snacks will be provided at the events. Volunteers should dress to get dirty, bring personal gloves if you prefer, and wear close-toed shoes. Please see here for additional location information.
