The Invasive Plants Volunteer Squad is being implemented as a cooperative endeavor between The Friends of Pocahontas State Park, represented by Ben Hedges, and the Virginia State Parks District 4 Resource Manager, represented by Irene Frentz. Under the supervision of Irene, Ben will serve as the guide for ongoing working sessions to control invasive plants in Pocahontas State Park.
Working sessions will be available, via registration, most afternoons, both on weekdays and weekends, 1 to 4 PM. These working sessions will not be “one off”, requiring people with conflicting schedules to all be available for an occasional special event. Small teams of just two or a few volunteers will be the norm. Access to Signup Genius for registration is by invitation from Ben. To receive an invitation, send an email request to firstname.lastname@example.org.
