Join the National Park Service and Rock Creek Conservancy for a special bamboo invasive removal volunteer event. We will be finishing the bamboo removal that we started back in the Spring! We rarely remove bamboo so this is a chance to show your support against one of Rock Creek Park's most invasive plants. This event requires the use of tools like saws and loppers and will be for volunteers 18 or older.

Date and Time: Saturday, September 16, 2017 from 9:45 am to 12:00 pm
