Wildflowers & Invasive Species

February 17, 2018 @ 9:30 am - 12:00 pm

Hal Wiggins will give a talk on the wildflowers of Mabe’s Trail and we will have a work session removing Japanese Honeysuckle. The honeysuckle threatens to blanket the native wildflowers including Dutchman’s breeches, May Apple, Toothwort, Trout Lily, Marsh Marigolds, Spring Beauty, Virginia Bluebells and numerous other natives.

Our goal is to introduce folks to the Mabe’s trail plants and to begin the eradication of the invasive species that threaten them. Please bring clean clippers, gloves and perhaps a kneeling pad for comfort. Those who come will be invited back for a walk on the trail in Spring when the flowers are emerging. Our beautiful riparian buffer is home to a wide variety of native plants including a healthy stand of paw paw.

If you are able to come please call Nick Cadwallender at 540-850-2196 or email at [email protected]

Challenges facing the Rappahannock gave it a C rating in our 2018 River Report Card. We’re raising that grade. Be inspired by some of our favorite stories across the watershed.
