  • Remove Invasive Plants (RIP)
    Join your neighbors as they restore the area’s natural plant communities. Help remove plants like English ivy and bush honeysuckle which threaten the health of Arlington’s parks and natural areas. Please visit the program page for more information: Remove Invasive Plants.

As we restart programs and reopen community centers, more volunteer opportunities will become available. We encourage you to visit our website often for updates. Thank you for your willingness to serve the Arlington community.
