List of 2013 Opportunities:
There are currently no volunteer opportunities until Spring 2014. Work days for 2013 included: National Invasive Species Week Workday, Southern Appalachian Bog Workday,
Spring has Sprung! Workday, Bluff Mountain Spring Clean-up, and "Work and Learn" Parties including a Salamander Crawl, Rich Cove Forest Wildflower Walk and Ferns and Their Friends!
Work and Learn Parties
Join us in the spring and summer for our annual Work and Learn Party series held at the ecologically rich Bat Cave Preserve in the Hickory Nut Gorge. Participate in a group service project by the Rocky Broad River in the morning and then learn from an expert after lunch. Expert topics vary from salamander searching to wildflower walks.
Fall Kudzu Workday
Each fall, we make a dent in the encroaching kudzu vine attempting to strangle our beautiful native hardwoods in the Hickory Nut Gorge. Volunteer with us during this especially colorful time of year at the Bat Cave Preserve for a fulfilling day of removing the invasive kudzu vine. Help save our native trees for all to enjoy!
Mountain Bog Restoration Field Day
Southern Appalachian mountain bogs are a rare and fragile natural community and, in most cases, very degraded. Volunteer to get on board with our restoration efforts held at one of these precious bogs each spring.
