Invasive Removal Workday @ Burrus
Our first few invasive species removal workdays were such a success, why stop there? Join the Roanoke Appalachian Trail Club in our ongoing invasive species removal and control at the Burrus Tract! The workparty will be removing and controlling those pesky invasive plants! We’ll be using loppers, folding saws, and hand-pruners to cut out and eliminate Multi-floral Rose, Japanese & Bush Honeysuckle, Oriental Bittersweet, and Autumn Olive.
The worksite is close to the AT-Kimberling Creek crossing, very near the intersection of VA 42 & VA 606. There is a short hike (5-10 min) from the trailhead to the project site.
Help us improve the AT! Through our work we’ll improve the views from this special spot, help native plants reestablish themselves, and enhance the surrounding habitat for wildlife.
You should bring: work gloves, sturdy work clothes and boots, water, and lunch.
Please bring loppers and/or folding saws if you can.
Carpool Info: We will leave the Orange Market at Hanging Rock at 8:00, and pick up the New River Valley folks at the Christiansburg Park and Ride (I-81 Exit 118B) at about 8:30.
Carpool fee: $6.00
