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.

Plant Rescue at Commander Shepard Blvd. extension

Grape fern

WNPR is rescuing plants from the site of a road extension in Hampton. The site has been surveyed and many plants have been tagged for rescue.

Despite it being February, the site is surprisingly rich, with grape fern (pictured), cranefly orchids, Elliott's goldenrod and spicebush.

Native Plant Garden at Freedom Park

WNPR with support from the John Clayton Chapter of the Virginia Native Plant Society has installed a fence in order to create a native plant garden located at Freedom Park in James City County. WNPR is currently in the process of planting this garden using rescued plants.

Labyrinth at York River State Park

Labyrinth and Stairs

WNPR in partnership with the Friends of York River State Park has cleared a scenic peninsula jutting into Beaver Pond at York River State Park. A labyrinth and a set of stairs has been installed. WNPR is in the process of planting native shrubs and herbaceous plants that have been rescued.
