Geocache Description:

9/29: This event is back at Whitemarsh Park - coordinates are N 38° 58.627 W 076° 43.380. I am in the process of having them updated again.


The City of Bowie’s Green Team is in need of volunteers to help remove English ivy from Whitemarsh Park. As an invasive, non-native plant, English ivy spreads quickly and easily and is very destructive to native ecosystems. This is an outdoor activity that requires cutting the ivy vines at eye-level and foot-level, then pulling them back about two feet from the base of the tree to bag them.

Children age 14 and younger must be under the direct supervision of a parent/guardian at all times, and no volunteers under age 16 can use tools but may participate by pulling and bagging vines.


Date: September 30, 2017

Time: 9:00am - noon

Address: 16500 Whitemarsh Drive, Bowie, MD 20715

There is plenty of parking available.

City of Bowie asks that you register for this event by contacting Ashleigh Armentrout, the City Sustainability Planner, at or calling 301-809-3044. Please also log a "Will Attend" so I know how many to prepare for.

Bring work gloves if you have them, the park will have some available for those who don't. Wear appropriate attire for working in the woods..

The park will provide all necessary tools for up to 25 volunteers.

I will bring a case of water and some snacks.
