Volunteers will gather between noon at 1:00 p.m. at the park (see directions below). Experts will instruct us in the proper methods to remove invasive species. Wear long pants, long-sleeved shirts, work gloves, and sturdy shoes. Please bring a tool such as hand clippers or loppers.
We will work together for two hours and then enjoy refreshments provided by the Friends of the Blue Ridge Mountains. The program will end by 4:00 p.m.
