Weed Warriors

Non-native Invasive plant species (NNIs) present one of the greatest threats to the health and biodiversity of our parklands. These unwelcome plants disrupt the ecology of natural ecosystems, displace native plants, impact native wildlife, and degrade the wonderful diverse wild lands of Montgomery County. In 1999, Montgomery Parks Forest Ecologist Carole Bergmann created the Weed Warrior volunteer program in response to the non-native invasive plant problem. The goal of the program is to educate citizens about identification and management of NNIs. So far Weed Warrior volunteers have logged more than 57,000 hours and have made a valuable contribution to the control of non-native invasive vegetation in Montgomery Parks. Will you join the fight and help keep Mongtomery County Parks beautiful?
