Invasive Plant Removal at Anderson Point


  

Event Description:

Join staff in removing invasive, non-native plant species from Anderson Point.

 

Volunteer Impact: Invasive species out-compete the native plants that our animals rely on for food. By removing these problem plants we are giving our native species a chance to grow. 

 

Volunteer Duties: We will be using handsaws (ages 18 only), and loppers to cut down invasive plants. We will also be dragging and stacking the removed debris.

 

Special Information: Please wear sturdy close-toed shoes, and clothing you can get dirty. We will supply the tools and work-gloves.

 

Work Environment: We will be working outside on uneven ground as we cut and remove invasive plants in the wooded areas of the park. There is a restroom on site. We will be working outside please dress accordingly.

 

Volunteer Requirements: Pre-registration is required. Volunteers must be at least 16 years old to volunteer. Everyone who volunteers must sign a release form. If anyone is under the age of 18, then a parent or guardian must sign their form as well.

 

Group Registration Information: Registration as a volunteer is first come, first served. A group leader must email mary.owens@raleighnc.gov to register. All groups will be required to provide a list of names and emails for their volunteers.

 

Per department policy, this volunteer opportunity is not to be used towards court-appointed/ suggested community service hours.
