Evergreen Nature Preserve Service Outing – Saturday, June 14, 2014 – 9am to 12pm

Preserve Our Preserves Service Outing

For the last 2 years, The Central Piedmont Group of the Sierra Club has been engaged in invasive species removal at Ribbon Walk Nature Preserve, and we have done such an outstanding job the Parks and Recreation Department has asked us to do the same for Evergreen Nature Preserve. Invasive species, also called “introduced species”,” non-native” or “non-indigenous” are plants that adversely affect the habitats or bioregions they invade. The invasive species dominate the region and crowd out native species which had previously provided habitat and food for birds and other wildlife. There is a great sense of satisfaction that comes from clearing a section of forest of invasive vines and seeing the natural open landscape restored. We would love to have you join us at Evergreen to pitch in and restore this little slice of nature right in the heart of East Charlotte.
