Richmond Hill Invasive Species Removal Workday

December 8 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm
Richmond Hill Park, 300 Richmond Hill Dr
Asheville, NC 28806 United States
+ Google Map

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! Be sure to wear long sleeves and pants as well as closed-toe shoes to this event. We will provide all other equipment necessary!
