Phoebe by Julia FlanaganThanks to volunteer support, we created an area at Merrimac Farm WMA where people and the environment can come together as one. It's a great area to watch wildlife, learn about native plants and pollinators, and get ideas for your own backyard.

We need help to keep nonnative invasive plants in check to maintain high quality habitat. Even if you can come just once, your help makes a big difference. Wear long pants, sturdy shoes, and long socks.

Wildlife GardenOver the past few years, the Minnieville Buffer Project near K9 Memorial Dog Park has helped to transform an area of land from an environmental problem, into a beautiful area that showcases Virginia's native plants.

In order to keep this area looking clean and beautiful, we need your help with a variety of tasks such as weeding, pruning, and watering to ensure that the buffer continues to provide all of its services to the environment and community. Come on down to the Minnieville Buffer near K9 Memorial Dog Park and make sure to wear long pants, sturdy shoes and hat to keep off that sun!

We are so excited to see what the future holds for this area, and hope that you will come out and join to keep our community beautiful and green.
