Paddle-n-Plant Workday

February 25 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

The French Broad Riverkeeper and MountainTrue are combating sediment erosion in our local waterways. Sediment is a major polluter in our river basin, clogging fish and aquatic habitats, increasing water temperatures, and transporting toxic substances. We are helping to reduce the amount of sediment that flows into our rivers by planting live-stakes along eroding riverbanks. These stakes will grow into trees that will stabilize the sides of the rivers and creeks where we plant them, and will reduce the overall amount of sediment getting into the river. So, come hop in a boat and help us reduce erosion along our local rivers!

MountainTrue is proud to co-sponsor this workshop put on by Democracy NC.

Richmond Hill Invasive Species Workday

March 9 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm
Richmond Hill Park, 300 Richmond Hill Dr
Asheville, NC 28806 United States

Richmond Hill is Asheville's only forested park, however, several acres of this unique urban ecosystem are overrun by non-native invasive plants. These invasives pose a threat to our native plant species by crowding out their habitat. Many of these species have the ability to grow at an alarming rate and, if left unchecked, could overgrow the walking and biking paths in Richmond Hill Park. Please join us as we take Richmond Hill Park back and restore native plants, making it a safer and more beautiful place to walk and bike!
