You can help identify and control non-native invasives plants in Rockville by joining the Montgomery County Weed Warrior program. Weed Warriors are trained to focus on 17 of the worst invasive plants in the Montgomery County area and are taught proper methods for manual pulling and clean up strategies.
Residents can be certified under the existing Montgomery County Weed Warrior program and can then volunteer in City of Rockville parks to manually remove non-native invasives.
Become a Certified Weed Warrior
To become certified, attend a Weed Warrior Certification Training. Once you are certified, email Shannon Philbin at firstname.lastname@example.org. Be sure to include the park you wish to work in and what species of non-native invasive plants you plan to remove. All plant detritus must be bagged and a pick-up site and time must be arranged at least a one week in advance.
