Carolina Memorial Sanctuary Workday
March 28, 2020 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm
The Carolina Memorial Sanctuary (CMS) is a one-of-a-kind green burial ground dedicated to preserving, protecting and renewing the land. Conserving Carolina has partnered with CMS to protect and steward the land for future generations to enjoy. This workday will be focused on controlling non-native and native invasive plants near a recently completed wetland restoration. Volunteers will hand-pull and cut species such as privet, multiflora rose, autumn olive, and blackberry around the wetland restoration to promote a native grassland meadow habitat. Wear closed-toe shoes, long pants, and bring water snacks, and lunch. Tools, gloves, and extra water will be provided. Meet at 195 Blessed Way in Mills River. To RSVP or get more information, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or call Natalie at 828-679-5777, ext. 211.
