AT under attack from invasives

Written by 

The Appalachian Trail Conservancy needs volunteers to eradicate invasive plants choking out native flora on the AT in Graham County on Friday, June 3, and Saturday, June 4.  

Volunteers will target multiflora rose, Japanese stiltgrass, Chinese privet, autumn olive and other weeds known to occur around Stecoah Gap. Volunteers get a free guidebook for the identification and control of invasive exotic plants, as well as a T-shirt, in appreciation for their efforts.

Meet at 10 a.m. at the Stecoah Gap parking area on N.C. 143 (seven miles east of Robbinsville). Bring lunch, two quarts of water, rain gear, sturdy hiking boots or shoes, durable pants and long sleeve shirts. 

The second workshop coincides with the 2011 National Trails Day.
