Greetings Kudzu Killers and RibbonWalk Warriors,
First Saturday of the month (7/7) and it’s time for our RibbonWalk Repair Day! Come on out and joins to have some fun and give back to our Park & Rec System. We’ll be doing some invasive removal and trail maintenance. For the brave of heart and those looking to get into the water and mud, bring your boots to walk the ponds and do some trash removal. They’ll be a little something for everyone and a lot of fun for all. See you there!
P.S. Bessie and Terra will be there as usual!
Who: You! Sierra Club members, potential members, and those that love to preserve and protect the environment are welcome to join us.
What: RibbonWalk Nature Preserve. RibbonWalk Nature Preserve is a 188-acre urban forest, located in north central Mecklenburg County only four miles from center city Charlotte. The preserve protects a diversity of forest and wetland habitats, including one of the oldest American beech tree groves in the region. Learn more at: http://www.charmeck.o….
When: First Saturday of the month unless noted on the website (www.charlottesierraclub.org). Bojangles biscuits, coffee and juice between 8:30 and 9:00 AM. Sign-in with liability waiver at 9:00 AM. Work and fun from 9:00 until 12:00 PM. We often will take a short hike to end the day and be back at the parking lot between 12:00 and 12:30 PM. Can’t stay for the entire time? No problem.
Where: 4601 Nevin Road, Charlotte, NC 28269. RibbonWalk Nature Preserve is located in north central Mecklenburg County a mile north of the intersection of I-85 and I-77. Get Directions
Why: The Sierra Club Central Piedmont group has adopted RibbonWalk as part of our conservation efforts and our Resilient Habitat campaign. With severe cutbacks to the Park & Rec budget, citizen volunteers are critical to helping to maintain our natural resources. Join us and make a difference.
What to bring: Dress in layers to stay warm. Wear sturdy shoes for work and walking. Bring a water bottle and a snack if you would like to nibble while you work. Work gloves recommended. Tools are provided but you are welcome to bring your own loppers, trowels, knives, etc.
