February 26, 2013 · 0 minute read
The Chesapeake Bay Foundation and Friends of Bryan Park are seeking volunteers to help remove English ivy and non-native honeysuckle from the area around the soon-to-be Nature Center in Richmond’s Bryan Park.
 
Volunteers plant Virginia bluebells at Pony Pasture, January 2010Invasive 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.
 
Work sessions to remove the invasive plants will be held Sunday, March 3, 2013, from 1:30-4:00 p.m.; and Saturday, March 30, 2013, from 10:00 a.m.-12:30 p.m. Volunteers should meet at the Nature Center site in the northwest corner of Bryan Park. This is a family-friendly event, so volunteers are welcome to bring family and friends.
