Kudzu Warriors

Monday, Apr 22, 2019 at 9:00am

Norman Wilder Forest
U.S. 176,
Tryon, NC 28782

Join the Conserving Carolina “Kudzu Warriors” as they continue the fight against Kudzu, a non-native and invasive vine, at the Conserving Carolina owned Norman Wilder Forest off of Hwy 176.

The Kudzu Warriors, named for their hard work eradicating Kudzu on Little Warrior Mountain, have been defending the Conserving Carolina nature preserve from Kudzu (and other exotic species) since 2011 and have made a tremendous impact on the property. Areas that were once a mat of Kudzu vines are now lush with native vegetation! But the fight is not over, and we need your help!

Join us Monday from 9-11 a.m. at the Norman Wilder Forest parking area/trailhead off of Hwy 176, between Tryon and Saluda. GPS points (35.224491, -82.274259)

We will supply tools and gloves, but please bring water and a snack for yourself, dress appropriately and bring your own work gloves if you’d like.

Call the southeast office (Polk County) of Conserving Carolina at 828-859-5060, or e-mail Max at max@conservingcarolina.org for more information.
