Part of the Mount Vernon Trail through Alexandria has gotten overgrown with kudzu, and locals are needed to help clear it out.
Friends of the Mount Vernon Trail posted on social media asking for volunteers to help remove it this Saturday (Aug. 27).
Those looking to help can register online.
The group’s website said they will meet near the power plant bridge near 615 Slaters Lane. Volunteers are needed to use loopers and clippers to cut vines and pull vines away.
According to the website, volunteers need to bring:
- Gloves (some will be available to borrow)
- Pruners or loopers (there will be some to borrow)
- Long sleeves and long pants
The kudzu has gotten bad on the power plant bridge in Alexandria again. Volunteer with us this Saturday as we return for our annual Kudzu removal festival.
