Rescue team celebrates Earth Day at the Virginia Living Museum

Native plant rescue team at Virginia Living Museum

Team members had a blast celebrating Earth Day 2017 at the Virginia Living Museum. We made a ton of new friends, ran into some old ones and signed up almost a dozen new volunteers.

A hot day in Hampton

Williamsburg Native Plant Rescue Team

The rescue team spent a few hours rescuing again in Hampton on Sunday, June 12, in temperatures pushing 100 degrees, though at least there were periodic breezes. Another plus: it hadn't rained in a few days, so the ground was fairly dry in the woods.

New Hampton rescue

The native plant rescue team had beautiful weather for a rescue in Hampton on Sunday, April 24. The site is next door to the National Institute of Aerospace, not far from where the team conducted a series of rescues a few years ago before Commander Shepard Boulevard was extended. Like those, the rescue was arranged by NIA employee and native plant champion, Lise Schioler.


Is this thing on?
We've just been so darn busy, we've not kept the site up to date. We'll get better. Promise.
