Catawba Wildflower Glen Service Outing

Saturday May 31, 9:00 a.m.-noon
Located in northwest Charlotte, NC
Join us at this Catawba Lands Conservancy preserve to help Mary Stauble, Land Stewardship Volunteer, remove invasive plants and contribute to protecting this important natural landscape. The Wildflower Glen is one of the conservancy’s crown jewels due to its rich ecological diversity and proximity to Charlotte.
We’ll meet at the property at 9 a.m. for an orientation where we’ll learn about the history and importance of the preserve. Then we’ll spend time pulling out invasive plants! Afterwards, Mary will lead us on a hike of the glen. Mary frequently visits the Glen and she is very knowledgeable about the local flora.
Please bring work gloves, clippers (optional), water, and a hat. Limit 10 participants.
You can learn more about why and how to control non-native invasive plants here:
