Welcome to Weed Warriors Training!


Welcome to the orientation training for Weed Warrior volunteers at John Heinz National Wildlife Refuge. We appreciate your interest in helping to restore and maintain our beautiful and vital wetland and forest habitats.

Our training program has three components:

Online Training Program

This program provides a general introduction to John Heinz National Wildlife Refuge and introduces basic principles of ecological restoration including the management of invasive plant species.

In-House Workshop

This 90-minute workshop reviews and details key aspects of the Weed Warriors program.

Field Day

This provides hands-on training in identifying invasive plant species and practicing management techniques.

The online training program is contained on this site; the other two components of the training are completed at the Refuge.

So let's get started!
