Cooperative effort helps protect shoreline at George Washington Birthplace.

Thanks to an Impact Grant from the National Park Foundation, a small section of shoreline at George Washington Birthplace National Monument got a big makeover.  

Led by Brian Lockwood of the National Park Service Mid-Atlantic Exotic Plant Management Team, a group of NPS staff and volunteers recently spent two days planting more than 5000 native grasses and shrubs along a section of shoreline that separates Popes Creek from the Potomac River.   Known as The Spit, this tiny bit of beach is an important part of the park’s natural resource base and part of an ongoing project to reduce invasive/exotic plants, help stabilize shoreline and restore habitat for birds and other animals.

“George Washington Birthplace is one of only 23 National Park Service sites selected to receive an Impact Grant from the National Park Foundation this year,” says Superintendent Melissa Cobern. “We’re very excited to have been chosen to receive a grant and grateful to everyone who supported the project.  It’s a wonderful example of how partners, volunteers and staff can work together to address important resource concerns and improve our parks.”

Park staff will continue to monitor and care for the plants until they become established and is planning other projects to address invasive/exotic plants in the area.
