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
Register for a site here.
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.
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 plants
