Volunteer Work Day & Happy Hour
March 21, 2018 @ 4:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Organizer: Reflection Riding Arboretum and Nature Center, Phone: (423) 821-1160 http://reflectionriding.org
Categories: Outdoors, Worthy Cause
Join us for an evening of volunteering, followed by a cold beer.
Right now, our main project is privet collection and burning. For some context:
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, 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. Be prepared to notice it everywhere after volunteering. Help us combat the problem and have fun doing it! See you Wednesday.
