Volunteer to Restore Native Habitat

ARMN welcomes volunteers to help us restore native habitat and stamp out invasive non-native plants in natural areas of our local parks.

This work is vitally important to protecting the region’s remaining pockets of biodiversity. In many natural areas, plants that have co-evolved with birds and other local wildlife over thousands of years are being overwhelmed by fast-growing introduced species that strangle trees and eliminate food sources.

As a volunteer, you will:

  • Work outdoors in woodlands, meadows, wetlands and other natural spaces
  • Learn about invasives and native flora and fauna from Master Naturalists leading the activity
  • Help remove non-native invasive plants and replace them with native plants that will support native wildlife
  • Experience the satisfaction of making a lasting difference in the health of our environment

ARMN is seeking volunteers for recurring events at more than a dozen parks in our region, including:

Additional events are scheduled at parks in Alexandria, Arlington, Falls Church and Fairfax on an occasional basis. All volunteer opportunities are listed in the calendar below. Please find more information at the registration links.

We love working with groups!

If you’d like to get your team involved in rewarding outdoor activities, please contact us with group size and a preferred timeline and we’ll get right back to you.
