Opportunity Details

Invasive Plant Management at Crooked Branch Park



 

When you are volunteering, please follow these tips for healthy volunteering. HandsOn Greater Richmond emphasizes the importance of following CDC guidance.



Sunday, September 12th, 1:00 p.m.-4:00 pm.
Invasive plant management at
Crooked Branch Ravine Park 
4027 Northrop Street
Richmond, 23225
Please use street parking; do not park in the gravel cul de sac at the park entrance. 
 
Crooked Branch Ravine Park is a hidden gem above Reedy Creek not far from Forest Hill Park.  At just 18 wooded acres, it presents a unique opportunity for ecological restoration through releasing its potential from the grips of dominant invasive vine and shrub species. 
 
We will work in two areas on two priorities: 
1) removing English ivy ground cover and “freeing trees” from climbing, smothering vines, and 
2) cutting back invasive wisteria, privet, and Tree of Heaven to prepare the stems for treatment.
Volunteers will work under the supervision of volunteer project leaders and park system staff. 
 
What to wear and bring:
•            Long pants and boots or sturdy, closed-toe shoes are a must
•            Long sleeves recommended
•            Water bottle

Work gloves and tools (loppers, pruners, handsaws) will be provided. 
If you prefer to use your own, label tools conspicuously.  
 
Meet in the gravel cul de sac at 1:00 p.m. 
 If you are unable to arrive until later, contact Laura Greenleaf at 804-629-1229 or Suzette Lyon at 804-982-7632 when you arrive.
