Ongoing efforts against invasive plants in Arlington

In recent years, various civic and environmental groups in Arlington have been taking strides to rid the county of invasive plants.

In particular, Arlingtonians for a Clean Environment (ACE) routinely sponsors events at which volunteers remove invasive plants from local parks.

The next ACE-sponsored event of this nature will take place on Thursday, June 19, soon before the beginning of summer. Volunteers will gather in Bluemont Park from 6:30 PM to 8:30 PM to work on a variety of service projects, including invasive plant removal.

Further, the county’s Department of Environmental Services oversees an ongoing volunteer program called Remove Invasive Plants (RiP). RiP’s tasks include not only eliminating existing specimens of invasive plants, but monitoring for the continued spread of invasive species such as English ivy.
