The Chesapeake Bay Foundation and Friends of the James River Park are seeking volunteers to help remove English ivy and non-native honeysuckle from the Pony Pasture in the James River Park. Invasive non-native plants such as English ivy and honeysuckle crowd out native plants that provide food and shelter for wildlife and reduce the natural diversity and resiliency of the park’s ecosystem.

Volunteers plant Virginia bluebells at Pony Pasture, January 2010A work session to remove the invasive plants will be held Saturday, March 16, 2013, from 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Volunteers should meet at the Pony Pasture parking lot on Riverside Drive.
