National Public Lands Day at Tryon Creek with REI

National Public Lands Day


September 25th 2010


9am to Noon


Meet at the Tryon Creek Nature Center


Celebrate the 17th annual National Public Lands Day with the Friends of Tryon Creek and REI. Pull together to remove invasive English ivy and to protect our forest. Ivy out competes our native plants, takes over the forest floor and ruins precious habitat.

National Public Lands Day is the largest volunteer hands-on activity of its kind in the nation. Held the last Saturday in September each year, the event brings together thousands of individual and organizational volunteers to refurbish and restore the country's public lands.


We hope to see you on this special day!
