JOIN US FOR OUR BIGGEST RESTORATION AND CELEBRATION EVENT OF THE YEAR!
Our 9th Annual Watershed-Wide Event is Saturday, February 10, 9 am – 1pm
Don’t miss this fun community event – our biggest volunteer day in the Tryon Creek watershed! We will gather for a morning breakfast and raffle with donations from Patagonia, REI, Grand Central Bakery & Starbucks. Then we’ll head into the watershed to work to remove invasive plants at various project sites throughout the Tryon Creek watershed. Please come dressed to work outside with closed-toe shoes, long pants, and weather-appropriate clothing (we work rain or shine!), and bring a water bottle. Gloves, tools, and snacks will be provided. Each site will have a TCWC leader to help your group at your designated site.
The Tryon Creek Watershed Council restores, protects, and enhances the ecological health and function of our unique urban watershed. The majority of TCWC projects involve restoration of riparian native vegetation on streambanks, particularly on private properties that lie along key wildlife corridors that neighbor green-spaces and that are adjacent to existing restoration sites. The council supports projects that remove fish passage barriers and coordinates partnerships, watershed planning, and monitoring.
The Council began in 1994 as a small group of concerned citizens and has grown into a 501(c)(3) organization with an active board and 400 volunteers.
