Description: Pleasure House Point Invasive Species Attack, This is a call for volunteers to join up and help the City of Virginia Beach clean out some invasive plant species and vines in one of the City’s newest environmentally sensitive parks. We will be working with City Parks and Recreation staff to rid a portion of the park of nuisance plant life that is strangling several beautiful live oaks and pine trees along the most visible area of the park. This is the section along Shore Drive between Marlin Bay Drive and the shared use path bridge over the creek. The City will be providing debris trailers to place the cuttings in. All we need to do is prune, lop and drag the items out to the containers.

We need 24 volunteers to show up and join the fun. No experience is necessary. The City staff will be helping us identify what items are to be lopped and removed. Preliminary work hours are 9:00 AM to 1:00PM, unless we finish early. FREE on-street parking is available on Marlin Bay Drive is right around the corner from the work area. Masks will NOT be required if you are fully vaccinated for COVID 19. Wear long pants and long sleeve shirts to protect from the briars, heavy-duty  gloves and sturdy closed-toe shoes. Hats and sunscreen are optional. Also, bring plenty of water to stay hydrated. Who knows, there may even be an opportunity for lunch or ice cream at the end of the effort?

Let’s show up and let the City see what TATC members can accomplish in a short period of work.
