Kudzu dig @ stekoa creek park
Join us to help remove kudzu and other non-native invasive species from Stekoa Creek Park in Clayton. Removing these plants reduces competition for native vegetation and helps restore the natural ecosystem.
We only need a limited number of volunteers for this event. Sign up to reserve your spot!
What to Expect: We’ll be digging kudzu roots and pulling vines, as well as digging up other invasive plants such as multiflora rose, honeysuckle, and privet. Expect to get dirty, and come prepared for the weather and elements! You could run into poison ivy, briars, stinging insects, etc. We recommend sturdy work pants, long sleeves, boots, and a hat.
What to Bring: Work gloves, plenty of water, snacks/lunch, a mask, and your own tools if you’d like (shovels, mattocks, spades, hand saws, and loppers or hedge shears are ideal for this).
COVID precautions: We’ll be working outside with space to spread out, but it may be necessary to work in close proximity to others at times. Please wear a mask when working near others and try to limit sharing of tools. Work gloves are strongly recommended, and we’ll also have hand sanitizer available.
