2024 MPEA Conservation Stewardship Project: Japanese Barberry Removal | Middle Patuxent Environmental Area | Jun 18, 2024 | 9:00am - 11:30am

Japanese Barberry is an abundant foe of the environmental area, and controlling this species requires continued efforts every year. Luckily, this invader is relatively easily uprooted; as such, on this day we will revisit an ever-expanding restoration site to continue digging and hand-pulling these spiny shrubs.

- Dig or hand-pull invasive Japanese Barberry shrubs

Notes:
- Training, plant removal tools, and supplies will be provided

- Precautions for the thorns, ticks, poison ivy, & stinging insects that may be encountered should also be taken

Please Bring/Wear:
