LAUREL, Md. (AP) — Maryland officials are looking for volunteers to help remove invasive weeds at two recreation areas along the Patuxent River.

The first cleanup is taking place Saturday in Laurel at the Scott’s Cove Recreation Area from 9 a.m. to noon. The second cleanup is taking place July 20 at the Supplee Recreation Area, also in Laurel.

Officials with the Washington Suburban Sanitary Commission say volunteers will help remove invasive weeds that are covering up natural habitat needed by wildlife. Officials will provide gloves and tools.

Anyone looking to volunteer can call the Washington Suburban Sanitary Commission at 301-206-8233.
