S. Trade St/Carolina Dr – Volunteer Workdays –
Help manage invasive species and restore the native habitat. By clearing the invasive species, there may be potential for people to enjoy the close-to-town property. The goal is to get the lot clear enough for it to be used as a recreational space, like a picnic area.
Volunteers will need the ability to navigate uneven terrain, use tools such as loppers, pruners, hand saws, and three-pronged hoe. We will provide training for invasive species ID and proper removal of them.
• Long pants
• Close toed shoes
• Water, snacks
• If you want to bring you own tools, you are free to do so
The lot is located next to the IGA in Tryon and we are meeting there at 9:30am every Thursday.
