Whack Attack

April 27 @ 9:00 am - 12:30 pm

Friends of Lower Haw River is having an invasive plant removal workday with State Parks biologists on April 27th from 9:00 to 12:30 (or whenever you need to leave). For this workday, volunteers will be working in the Pokeberry Creek area of the Lower Haw River State Natural Area, about half a mile walk from the Bynum Mill parking lot. Invasive plant workdays involve identifying and removing non-native plants using clippers, pruners, saws, and other non-motorized hand tools. Learn about invasive plants and removal techniques. Bring your own loppers or hand pruners, work gloves, insect repellent, and water. Wear long pants, long sleeve shirt, and closed toe shoes. There are no restroom facilities at this location. Youth volunteers ages 12 to 17 are welcome to participate if accompanied by an adult.
