The first Wednesday of each month at the Capital Crescent Trail 8:30 a.m. – 10 a.m. – rain or shine. Next effort on October 7, then November 4.
Meet at the gravel parking lot at the intersection of Massachusetts Ave and Little Falls Parkway at 8:30 am. Help us save the magnificent native trees along the Capital Crescent Trail!
Join Montgomery County Parks Certified Weed Warrior Supervisor, David Brooks, as we manually remove the invasive vines from trees along this well loved trail. English ivy vines cover the trees, slowly killing the trees from the base upwards. The vines also harbor a bacterial leaf scorch that affects a wide variety of native and ornamental trees. Other invasive vines completely engulf the trees, shading them out and overburdening them with added weight, causing the trees to topple. Help us save them!
