About The Friends

Planting sedge-1
The Friends of Washington Grove help manage Washington Grove, a park owned by the City of Rochester. We encourage its sustainable use as an old growth forest, and foster scientific research to support the City’s management goals. We inform park visitors and the community about the ecology and history of this valuable resource. We work with the city to remove invasive plants and encourage the growth of plants native to this forest. We depend on the help of volunteers to do this valuable work.
