Volunteers to naturalize Richland Creek banks

Written by 

out richlandVolunteers are needed to help Haywood Waterways root the invasive plants out of Richland Creek’s banks at Vance Street Park in Waynesville. From 2 to 5 p.m. April 29, the group will remove Japanese knotweed, multiflora rose, oriental bittersweet, Chinese privet and Japanese honeysuckle.

These species strangle and outcompete native plants, creating a riparian — or streamside — zone that offers less food for wildlife and less protection against erosion. Bring boots, gloves and a willingness to get dirty. Tools and refreshments provided. Eric Romaniszyn, 828.476.4667 or This email address is being protected from spambots.
