Join CMLC at Foster Creek Bog/John Humphrey Farm in Mills River for a day of volunteering on Friday, November 6th.
The farm and bog located in Mills River are owned by John Humphrey, a long time CMLC supporter and volunteer. The property is CMLC's first conservation easement and is a convenient volunteer site for people living in Asheville and Hendersonville. This property is beautiful and holds more ecological treasures than could ever be noted.
The work day will begin at 9:00AM and end at 2:00PM. We will be using the cut-stump method to treat non-native invasive plants such as larger climbing oriental bittersweet and barberry. Additionally, there will be some hand-pulling of smaller invasive plants surrounding the bog. This work will allow for the precious bog ecosystem to flourish and will remove some of the non-native invasive plants smothering the fragile ecosystem. The work will be entirely outdoors and will involve long periods of standing, bending, stooping, and handling larger sections of invasive plants, including some with thorns.
That being said, we will have drinks and snacks, and it will be a great time doing awesome work with a fun group of people, including CMLC staff, AmeriCorps members, and other volunteers. Please come out and get things done at Foster Creek Bog on Friday, November 6th!
