Approximately 20 volunteers and staff will converge at Suli Marsh on the Little Tennessee River Greenway from 1 to 5 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 23, to eradicate exotic invasive plants smothering and crowding out native plants in natural areas.
Some volunteers will work in the standing water of the marsh (in waders) while others will work around the edges of the marsh.
