Monticello Volunteers Participate in Day of Caring

Posted: Updated:

Monticello joined the United Way's  Day of Caring for the first time this year. Twenty volunteers pulled, clipped, and bagged invasive plants along Saunders-Monticello Trail in Albemarle County.

The goal was to remove plants not native to the area before those plants can take over. Trail manager Jason Stevens led the team through the wooded trail.

"We had snips and loppers and saws and we went through just along the trail about 10 to 20 feet off of each side, just removed the invasives and then threw them on the side of the trail and bagged up some of them that we are going to be throwing them away," said Jason Stevens, Saunders-Monticello Trail manager.

Other groups at Monticello taking part in the United Way Day of Caring wrote letters to soldiers and painted the main gate and fence.
