Island Park Invasive Plant Volunteer Work Session

February 6 @ 11:00 am - 2:00 pm

Join MountainTrue and the Tuckasegee River Alliance as we work to eradicate nonnative invasive plants at Island Park in Bryson City. Island Park - which is currently closed to the public pending storm damage repairs - is an island in the Tuckasegee River. Infestations of non-native invasive plant species threaten native diversity, especially in terms of wildflowers and forest understory, creating the need for restoration work to bring the island back to its full splendor. 

Volunteer work sessions are being scheduled to start the work of eradicating these non-native invasive pest plants. Advance registration is required. The workday is planned for Saturday, February 6th, from 11 am to 2 pm. The work session is limited to 15 participants.

Live Staking Workday

February 20 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm

The Watauga 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. As these stakes grow into trees, they stabilize the sides of the rivers and creeks where we plant them and reduce the overall amount of sediment getting into the river. Come plant with us!
