Thank you to everyone who volunteered at our 2017 Watershed Wide Event. The day was a huge success! We had over 80 volunteers join us for a day of restoring the Tryon Creek watershed. This is what they accomplished:

– planted over 400 native trees and shrubs

– cleared 200 trees from invasive ivy

– removed 20,000 square feet of invasives

– cleaned and organized a native plant nursery with hundreds of native plantsĀ
