The PATC, in coordination with the Virginia Native Plant Society, will be conducting a invasive plant removal day at Thompson Wildlife Management area near Linden, Virginia from 1-4PM.  This area is one of the most outstanding botanical sites in the Virginia Blue Ridge.  Unfortunately, the native flora of Thompson is increasingly threatened by invasive plant species.  On March 28th, we'll concentrate our efforts on pulling garlic mustard (Alliaria petioilata).


No prior experience is necessary.  Training will be provided on-site.  Please bring seasonal appropriate clothing (never forget rain gear), gloves, water, snacks and a small trowel if you have one.  Be prepared to hike several miles and squat or bend over repeatedly - all with the satisfaction that you are helping to protect a truly special natural area


We will meet at the Trillium parking area, off of Freezetown Rd.  GPS Coordinates are 38°57'12.8"N 78°01'36.9"W.
