Volunteer programs for removing invasive plants in Northern Virginia

Invasive plants are species which were intentionally or accidentally introduced by human activity into a region in which they did not evolve and which cause harm to natural resources, economic activity or humans. (Learn more about Invasive plants)​


Habitat loss and invasive plants are the leading cause of native biodiversity loss. Invasive plant species spread quickly and can displace native plants, prevent native plantgrowth, and create monocultures. A healthy plant community has a variety of herbs, shrubs, and trees.
