Join the Remove Invasive Plants (RiP) volunteer group and support hands-on plants removal, education and surveys/mapping.

--Work in small neighborhood sites where 90-100 percent removal of all invasive plants is an achievable goal; help educate neighbors.
--Slow the spread of invasive plants in target areas by cutting vines back from trees and removing seed and fruit from select species.
--Provide maintenance-level plant removal after vendors or County staff have completed preliminary work.
--Provide preventive monitoring and spot removal in sites that are ecologically significant and have not yet been impacted.
--Monitor target areas and serve as a quick-reaction force to eliminate newly established plants before they spread.
