Community Outreach the Weed Warrior Way!

The Collington Weed Warriors have expanded their reach and adopted the Regents Park Trail. Under a program of the Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission, they will pick up trash and clear branches off the trail four times a year.

On Saturday, August 25, thirteen Weed Warriors did their first trail cleaning. They hauled out five large bags, three of recyclables and two trash.

Regents Park abuts the Collington property. The paved path goes through a mature forest of American Beech and Tulip Popular. A full canopy means there is very little understory, giving walkers lovely views along the way. The trail can be accessed from the Collington Perimeter trail, but should be used only by very fit walkers. Getting to the trail means stepping over a couple large fallen trees and traversing some very uneven ground. The trail is outside SARA coverage.

Many thanks to our Weed Warriors for all their back breaking work. You make your community proud!

  1. WOW. The inclusion of the Regents Park trail is such a wonderful and natural outreach. The Weed Warriors already do so much to keep our Collington walking trails open and available to us. By adding the Regent Park trail, which some of us have already enjoyed, they are fulfilling a need in our local community. Many thanks.
