RibbonWalk Service Outing and Hike

Join us on the second Saturday of every month, from 9:00 until 12:00 for some service, fun, and a chance to spend some time in nature? We’ll be working on invasive plant removal and other land improvement projects. We will end the morning with a naturalist lead hike in the preserve.

Outing Information

Who: You! Sierra Club members, potential members, and those that love to preserve and protect the environment are welcome to join us.

What: RibbonWalk Nature Preserve. RibbonWalk Nature Preserve is a 188-acre urban forest, located in north central Mecklenburg County only four miles from center city Charlotte. The preserve protects a diversity of forest and wetland habitats, including one of the oldest American beech tree groves in the region.

When: Second Saturday of the month unless noted on the website (www.charlottesierraclub.org). Sign-in with liability waiver at 9:00 AM. Work and fun from 9:00 until 11:30 AM. We’ll take a short hike to end the day and be back at the parking lot between 12:00 and 12:30 PM. Can’t stay for the entire time? No problem.

Where: 4601 Nevin Road, Charlotte, NC 28269. RibbonWalk Nature Preserve is located in north central Mecklenburg County a mile north of the intersection of I-85 and I-77. Get Directions

Why: The Sierra Club Central Piedmont group has adopted RibbonWalk as part of our conservation efforts and our Resilient Habitat campaign. With severe cutbacks to the Park & Rec budget, citizen volunteers are critical to helping to maintain our natural resources. Join us and make a difference.

What to bring: Dress in layers to stay warm. Wear sturdy shoes for work and walking. Bring a water bottle and a snack if you would like to nibble while you work. Work gloves recommended. Tools are provided but you are welcome to bring your own loppers, trowels, knives, etc.

Meetup has allowed me to meet people I wouldn't have met naturally - they're totally different than me.
