Many of the invasive plant species occurring in the park established themselves decades ago and others are rapidly catching up. In the case of newcomers, we have the chance to intervene—so long as we recognize the threat.
The James River Park System is seeking a part time Invasive Species Coordinator to lead volunteers in Native Habitat Restoration.
Have you ever been at Pony Pasture and wondered about that patch of land in the middle of the James? That’s Williams Island.
The work of the James River Park System Invasive Plant Task Force doesn’t end when cold weather arrives. In fact, we are scheduling more invasive plant fighting volunteer days during January and February.
February 23rd signals the beginning of National Invasive Species Awareness Week, and we have a variety of events through the Park for you to learn more or lend a hand. On that Sunday you can join us at Pony Pasture to learn more about invasive species.
We recently took advantage of a wonderful Fall day to catch up with Catherine Farmer on Belle Isle.
She’s in charge of the Habitat Restoration Project there.
