The DC-CWMA, members and partners are holding a multi-location invasive plant removal event on May 4, 2013 as a part of the regional Mid-Atlantic Invasives Day. This will be the 2nd year of the exciting event which provided an opportunity for District residents to be become stewards of forested areas in DC by helping preserve native wildlife habitat.
