Ivy Pull will be Friday, Nov. 3

UNCG is beautiful. And UNCG volunteers will join in making Peabody Park even more healthy and attractive.

On Friday, Nov. 3, from 1-3 p.m., the Peabody Preservation Committee will host its 10th anniversary fall Ivy Pull event. The occasion will serve as a time to remove invasive species from the woods, while also increasing diversity by planting native species such as shrubs and herbs.

For the past 20 years, the UNCG Peabody Park Preservation Committee has worked with members of the community to restore the Peabody Park Woods on campus. Recipient of the Greensboro Beautiful Annual Service Award for “year-round excellence in environmental education and campus beautification”, the committee works to educate the community and help maintain safety in the woods.

Volunteers are advised to wear old clothes, long pants, and closed-toe shoes. Important items and electronics should also be left at home. Participants will meet at the south entrance of the woods, at the north end of College Ave.
