Student Service


 Saturday, November 17, 2018,  9:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. (Whitemarsh Park)

www.cityofbowie.org/weedwarriors

The City of Bowie’s Green Team is in need of volunteers to help remove English ivy from Whitemarsh Park. As an invasive, non-native plant, English ivy spreads quickly and easily, and is very destructive to native ecosystems. This is an outdoor activity that requires cutting the ivy vines at eye-level and foot-level, then pulling them back about two feet from the base of the tree to bag them.  To participate, please register by contacting Ashleigh Armentrout (aarmentrout@cityofbowie.org, 301-809-3044). This is a great Student Service-Learning opportunity. Children age 14 and younger must be under the direct supervision of a parent/guardian or Troop Leader at all times, and no volunteers under age 16 can use tools but may participate by pulling and bagging vines. Tiffany Wright (Watershed Manager for the City of Bowie) or Kristin Larson (Sustainability Planner for the City of Bowie) will sign off on service-learning hours for students at the event.


Interested in Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts, or Math? Then STEAMfest is the perfect opportunity for you. Join us on Saturday, October 27, 10 am - 3 pm, at Show Place Arena. Volunteers will assist with event set-up/break-down, greeting patrons, and helping with workshops. This volunteer opportunity is approved for Prince George's County Public Schools student service learning hours. Minimum age is 15 years old.
