Roan Mountain Weed Wrangle
March 2, 2019 @ 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Noon – 4:00 PM Eastern
Roan Mountain State Park is proud to be taking part in a state-wide effort, the 2019 Weed Wrangle, to rid of invasive exotic plants across the state and to restore native plants. On Saturday, March 2nd from 12:00-4:00 PM, we are requesting your assistance in a battle to keep our Hemlocks safe from the Hemlock Wooly Adelgids as well as the removal of invasive Japanese Knotweed. Volunteers will meet at the park headquarters to be briefed on the day’s plant battle. Following, groups will either assist in treating healthy Eastern Hemlocks against the spread of Adlegids or they will be working with a stream-side group removing Japanese Knotweed. These two threats may change the beautiful mountain landscapes forever if left unchecked. It is only with your help that we can prevent the spread of these dangerous species. Volunteers are encouraged to bring layers of clothing for cold weather, gloves, and water. Tools will be provided on site.
