Join us for an evening of volunteering, followed by a cold beer around a pile of burning privet.
Reflection Riding just had NINE whole acres of privet removed. However, the plants are still piled up along our grounds and need to be piled and burnt before they re-infest the area.
If you’re not familiar with Chinese Privet, you’re about to notice it everywhere! It’s an invasive exotic plant that grows rapidly throughout Southeast Tennessee, taking space away from native plants which create ecosystems for pollinators, food for birds, and prevent erosion.
