Field Schedule

Logistics: Unless inclement weather is forecast or an update indicates otherwise, you can assume that we will be out. If for some reason you want to double-check, you can try to reach us at 703.764.4830. Bring work gloves, if you have them, and a bottle of drinking water. Unless otherwise noted, we will provide tools. Wear sturdy shoes to our field events. Please do not wear sandals or open-toed shoes! And if you are coming out to one of our field sites you're better off wearing long, light-weight pants, rather than shorts. (But shorts are fine at the nursery.) You do not need to register before an event, unless otherwise noted. Students: If you need hours for a class requirement, a staff member can sign a verification form if you bring one, but we do not provide these forms ourselves.  

Upcoming Events

Wild Plant Nursery Workday

When: Every Sunday, Monday, and Thursday, from 9 am to Noon.

What: Join us on Sundays, Mondays, and Thursdays for our regular nursery workdays. Volunteers can help with weeding, preparing pots, sowing seeds, and transplanting. Please wear shoes that can get muddy and bring your own water. Contact Matt Bright if you have questions about the schedule: For safety reasons, we may have to cancel volunteer workdays and nursery hours on short notice because of inclement weather. If you have any questions about scheduling at the nursery call or text Matt Bright at 703 859 2951.

Where: The Nursery is in Springfield, Virginia, in Franconia Park, which lies just south of the Beltway, and just east of the Beltway’s intersection with Routes 95 and 395. The address to our entrance is 6100 Cloud Drive. Access is from Franconia Road (644). From Franconia, turn north on Thomas Drive, less than half a mile east of the 395/95 intersection. There is a traffic light at Thomas. From Thomas, turn right onto Meriwether Lane. Turn left onto Cloud Drive. Please park in the parking lot at the bottom of the entrance road, then walk down the dirt road along the community gardens. Our nursery lies beyond the community gardens. View the nursery's location on Google Maps.
