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. To participate, please register by contacting Kristin Larson (klarson@cityofbowie.org, 301-809-3044). This is a great Student Service Learning opportunity. Children age 14 and younger must be under the direct supervision of a parent/guardian or Troop Leader at all times, and no volunteers under age 16 can use tools but may participate by pulling and bagging vines. Tiffany Wright (Watershed Manager for the City of Bowie) or Kristin Larson (Sustainability Planner for the City of Bowie) will sign off on service learning hours for students at the event.

Stream Cleanup

Various Locations Around Bowie

April 1st, 9:00 a.m. to 12 p.m.

The City will hold its annual Stream Cleanup on Saturday, April 1, 2016, from 9 a.m. to noon, rain or shine (unless there is lightning). Stream teams walk along select streams across the City and pick up trash and litter that would otherwise wash down to the Patuxent River and head towards the Chesapeake Bay. Cleanup days are a great time for Bowie residents and their families to get out into the environment and experience nature while working to protect Bowie’s water resources. We will provide all necessary supplies. You just need to have sturdy shoes or boots, long sleeves, water, and fun! Eligible students will earn Student Service Learning (SSL) hours, and Scouts will receive a Green Bowie patch or year bar. To nominate a stream for cleaning or to register for the cleanup, contact Tiffany Wright at twright@cityofbowie.org or 301-809-3043

On Saturday, May 6th, our community holds it’s annual “Berwyn Heights Day” celebration.

Through out the day we have activities, including a fun run, pancake breakfast, a parade, rides, games, refreshment and ticket sales.

We will need volunteers throughout the day to help us manage all of this. Teens can fill some of their community service hours, and hopefully have some fun at the same time. We can also offer them some free food tickets, and possibly some free ride and game tickets.

At our next Rec Council meeting, we will be compiling our specific needs for volunteers, but in the meantime, if you can spread the word, we would greatly appreciate it.

For any questions, or offers to volunteer, they can contact me, Susan Jones at violindreams@verizon.net
