Lower Haw River State Natural Area – Whack Attack! Invasive Species Removal Workdays

Friends of Lower Haw River State Natural Area holds invasive plant species workdays with State Parks biologists.

Our next workday will be September 10 from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m.

Invasive plant workdays typically involve identifying and removing non-native plants using clippers, pruners, saws, or any other non-motorized hand tool. Only park staff will be able to use motorized equipment like chainsaws and brush saws for larger plants.

Learn about invasive plants and removal techniques. Bring your own loppers or hand pruners, work gloves, insect repellent, and water.

Pre-registration is required for workdays. Please email ncmlynch@gmail.com with "Invasives" in the subject line to sign up for the Whack-Attack Team.

Date of Event: 
Saturday, September 10, 2022 - 9:00am

Start Location:
