Tryon Creek Ivy Pull This Saturday

Stewardship Saturdays

Every second and fourth Saturday of the month 9:00am to 12:00pm

Second Saturdays are always ivy pulls and fourth Saturdays may be trail maintenance during the fall and winter.

Ivy pulls: 

Pull together to remove invasive English ivy and to protect our forest.  Ivy out-competes our native plants, takes over the forest floor, shades out trees and ruins precious habitat.

Trail Maintenance:

Work with other volunteers to maintain trails and keep them safe and clean. Projects may include digging out paths for rain water, spreading gravel and clearing culverts.
