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.
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!
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.March 13, 2013
