Evergreen Nature Preserve Service Outing

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.

What to bring: 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.

Liability Waiver: All participants on Sierra Club outings are required to sign a standard liability waiver. If you would like to read the liability waiver before you choose to participate in an outing, download a copy at NC Sierra Club Sign In Waiver

      Hi Adam, I'm glad to hear you're interested in participating in our service outings. June 14 will be our first session of invasive species removal at Evergreen. It will be fun to watch the transformation there over time. We also did invasive removal at Wildflower Glen near Mountain Island Lake last weekend, and I'm sure there will be future opportunities to do more there. Keep an eye on this Meetup site for updates

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
