Horseshoe Farm Invasive Removal Day
** IN ORDER TO REGISTER AS A VOLUNTEER FOR THIS EVENT YOU MUST EMAIL MARY.OWENS@RALEIGHNC.GOV AND SHE WILL SEND YOU THE LINK.**
Join staff in removing invasive non-native plant species from Horseshoe Farm Nature Preserve.
Volunteers will use handsaws (18 years) and loppers to cut down Privet. We will also be dragging and stacking the removed Privet.
Invasive species out-compete the native plants that our animals rely on for food. By removing these problem plants we are giving our native species a chance to grow.
We will be working outside on uneven ground as we cut and remove the Privet in the wooded areas of the park. There is a restroom on site.
Pre-registration is required. Volunteers must be at least 16 years old to volunteer. Everyone who volunteers must sign a release form. If anyone is under the age of 18, then a parent or guardian must sign their form as well.
Please bring a water bottle and wear sturdy, close-toed shoes and clothing you can get dirty. We will supply the tools and work-gloves.
