Butterfly Garden Weeding Party Rendezvous, 8:30 am at the marina, Lake Accotink Park Did you know that the center traffic island by the carousel is a butterfly garden? FLAP weeded out invasive species in the fall and planted native plants. We need to go back in and see what survived the winter and remove any new invasive species that have taken root. So we are going to have a weeding party! This is a great opportunity for students to get volunteer hours and for anyone in the community to help improve a visible area of the park. If you are already in the park for the FCPA cleanup, stop by and say hi and pull a few weeds with us! If you have gardening tools and can bring them with you that will also be very helpful!
