Tryon Creek State Natural Area
Pull together to remove invasive English ivy and to protect the forest. Ivy out competes our native plants, covers tree canopy stopping photosynthesis, takes over the forest floor and ruins precious habitat. You'll remove this ivy manually, without chemicals, to minimize damage to the ecosystem, so help from the greater community is very much appreciated. Come hang out with fellow nature enthusiasts and give back to your community!
Registration is not required but please call ahead if you have a group of five or more.
