eco Bit

Want to help protect Western North Carolina's National Forest, the Appalachian Trail and the French Broad River from invasive exotic plants that are threatening the biodiversity of our special natural resources?

Learn the impacts of invasive exotic plants, how to control them in your own yards, plant identification as well as have some FUN with a diverse group of volunteers. We will be removing invasive exotics along the French Broad River by pulling, cutting or chain sawing (for those who are certified) in the Hot Springs area.

September 23, 24, and 25,
September 29, 30 and October 1,

Join us 8 hours or more and receive a T-shirt! Come for PRIZES & GIVEAWAYS! We will have coffee and donuts ready for you at 7:45am! Training begins at 8am. Volunteers are asked to donate 8 hours of time. If you prefer, half-day options are available.

What we will provide:

Training and identification on the TOP 12 UNWANTED plants · Methods of control · Safety training · Training on all tools · An opportunity to practice removal techniques · Snacks, coffee, donuts and lots of water!
