Father and Son Volunteer to Protect Wildlife

Greg Goodwin and his son Gabriel reflect on why it is so important to them to volunteer their time removing Japanese barberry from the banks of Sligo Creek, located in Wheaton, Maryland. The shrub is one of many invasive species plants overtaking the creek and threatening native plants and wildlife. The duo volunteered with the Montgomery Parks Weed Warrior Program at a work session organized by Friends of Sligo Creek.
