Okehocking Weed Warriors

Weeds Beware!

Join the Weed Warriors at Okehocking Preserve! Volunteers looking for fresh air and exercise during fall and winter can join us to help fight the invasive species that threaten the overall health of the Preserve and encroach on trails. After the leaves fall is a perfect time to tackle unwanted non-native plants. Meet at the Okehocking Preserve at the picnic tables by Ridley Creek on the first Saturdays each month starting Nov 5 at 9 AM through our last session April 1. The Weed Warriors work no later than noon. 

Bring your favorite invasive removal tools and gloves. We will also have some tools available.

Thanks go to Dave Smith, our Head Okehocking Weed Warrior, for taking the lead! Email Dave or Mary for more information. Dave has undergone training through the John Heinz National Wildlife Refuge and Friends of Heinz Refuge Weed Warrior program.
