Eastside Land Restoration

November 10 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am

Free

Background Info:

Conserving Carolina’s recently acquired Roseland tract in Tryon’s historic Eastside, provides important watershed protection to the North Pacolet River, bordering over 1,650 feet of the North Pacolet River and nearly 2,700 feet of Little Creek, a tributary to the North Pacolet River. The property also contains a diversity of plant and animal species endemic to Western North Carolina.

 

Workday Description:

Volunteers will work with Conserving Carolina staff to control non-native invasive plants impacting the natural communities present on the Roseland tract. Invasive plants such as kudzu, multiflora rose, privet, English ivy, and Japanese honeysuckle, among others, will be removed by hand pulling or by cutting them at their base and applying a small amount of herbicide to the cut surface.
All tools, gloves, and safety equipment will be provided. Plant ID and removal/control techniques will be taught on-site. You will get dirty, so make sure to dress appropriately.

What to Wear:

Work pants, long sleeves, and close-toed shoes; dress for the weather.

What to Bring: 

Drinking water, snacks/lunch, work gloves (if you have a personal pair), and a small backpack.
