We Remove Invasives 


HC-RIPS - Taking Care of Nature

Join HC-RIPS for a rip-roaring Weed Wrangle at Westwood School!

October 7 from 10-2.


We’ll bring the tools!

And we’ll show you how to use them.


Let’s knock those bad guys out so the kids will have a beautiful woods to explore and learn all about nature.


We have new Projects:
HC-RIPS has discovered an amazing woodland trail full of outstanding natural treasures – giant oaks, burbling springs and adorable gnome-like skunk cabbages!

Hidden Treasures


First we need to clear invasives from the Trail of Hidden Treasures. 

Can you help?

We want to convert a neglected wet area into a gorgeous wetland meadow.
  • We've raised over $2,000!
  • We've got the seeds selected.
  • Waiting on approval
HC-RIPS envisions Henry County free of invasive plants and full of native plants that support birds, bees and well as people!

We have 3 ongoing projects:

  1. Strike Teams work all winter removing invasive plants from local parks

  2. Landowner Surveys to help them make their properties healthier.

  3. Weed Wrangles bring volunteers together to learn hands-on how to remove invasive plants and then we clear an invaded site.

We provide speakers to public events.
