Please join us for our first big workday on Saturday, March 28, for the kick-off of the 2020 Sycamore Flats Restoration Project to “Take Back the Flats!” We’ll be removing non-native invasive plant species and making space for native, pollinator-friendly plants in the riparian areas between the Davidson River and the Sycamore Flats Recreation Area.
We will be having a work project next Tuesday, November 12 doing live staking of willow shoots to protect the bank of the Yellowstone Prong River in Graveyard Fields.
As autumn draws closer, we are preparing to plant 300 more red spruce trees in the Pisgah National Forest—at Black Balsam on Monday, September 23. This follows a 2017 planting of 902 trees at nearby Flat Laurel Creek.
On Saturday, October 12, the Carolina Mountain Club will be hosting a work day on the Mt. Pisgah trail. No trail maintenance experience is required and tools will be provided.
In September and October this year (2019), Trout Unlimited and the Pisgah National Forest are constructing six rain gardens adjacent to Looking Glass Creek, the Davidson River and the North and South Fork Mills Rivers at highly trafficked areas. We invite you to help!
