Volunteer Overview

Join TNC and James River Park System's Invasive Plant Task Force for an invasive plant removal workday along the Buttermilk Trail.

Volunteer workdays will occur monthly on the following dates:

  • January 19, 2024 | 1:00 - 3:00 p.m.
  • February 16, 2024 | 1:00 - 3:00 p.m.
  • March 15, 2024 | 1:00 - 3:00 p.m.

Volunteers are needed to help remove vines and other invasive plant species. These workdays will contribute to the park’s conservation efforts of removing invasive plants that can crowd out native species, increase tree mortality, alter soil composition and reduce habitat.
