Saturday, July 13 – Habitat Restoration

Join us in the battle against non-native invasive plants. Chinese Privet is rapidly spreading through one of our preserve properties and we need your help cutting and applying small amounts of herbicide to the stump to keep it from taking over. By removing this invasive plant you will be helping to restore a diverse, native habitat. We will be working alongside a stream in the shade. No tools or plant ID necessary. All equipment will be provided and plant identification taught on site.

Meeting Location: Pleasant Grove Church, Mill Spring, NC 28756
