Below are the city volunteer opportunities that will get you outdoors in nature! Please go to the city's calendar for times and locations of each event.
Habitat Restoration & Invasive Weed Removal
Join the City of Falls Church Habitat Restoration Team in restoring the local ecosystem in City parks. This includes on-going removal of invasive vegetation and replanting with native species when plants are available.
We have five events scheduled for Spring 2021. We will operate in small groups, masked, and socially distanced. We are limiting each event to 25 people, so we are asking you to pre-register with this sign-up genius form: http://bit.ly/21FCHRT. Check the flyer for location details, and watch the city calendar for possible schedule changes.
Howard E Herman Stream Valley Park (invasive removal)
Help the Habitat Restoration Team manage invasive plants in the City by volunteering to take on the challenge in your own back (and front) yard. Not sure what plants are considered invasive or how to manage them? Our Invasive Plant of the Month series describes some of the most common invasive plants to look out for, and how to remove them.
Community Clean-Up Events Spring Cleanup: Saturday, April 17, 2021; 10:00 a.m. to noon
Join in the fun to make the city beautiful! In the spring and fall, volunteers work together to clean up the city. Volunteers meet at the Community Center, are organized into teams, and assigned to work areas throughout the city. City staff distributes trash pickers, trash bags, recycling bags, gloves, and reflective vests. Perfect for community groups (Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, etc.), church groups, families, or individuals.
