Blake Lane Park parking lot
10033 Blake Ln, Oakton
Two years ago, a group of citizens saved Blake Lane from being turned into a school. Now they need to save the park from invasive plants. The area is covered with bittersweet, porcelain berry, wisteria, mile-a-minute, stilt grass, Japanese honeysuckle, and others. They need help pulling and digging. They also need help maintaining a pollinator garden that the Girl Scouts planted a few years ago.
The site leader for the Fairfax County Park Invasive Management Area Program will be hosting a workday almost every Saturday in October at BLake Lane Park in Oakton. There will NOT be a workday on Oct 1. Volunteers are asked to bring gloves, water, a snack, bug spray and long pants.
They hope to see you there! Please let Jennifer Pradas know ahead of time if you are planning on coming.
