(Postponed) Volunteer at Peabody Park “ivy pull”


Keeping invasive ivy under control in Peabody Park is important for the life of trees and and other plants. The park is host to one of the few remaining prairies in North Carolina. Now, The Office of Sustainability and The Peabody Park Preservation Committee are inviting volunteers to help preserve this unique ecosystem.

The Peabody Park Spring 2019 Ivy Pull will be held on April 12, from 1-3 p.m. (Note: It was postponed until April 12 due to weather.) The event is an opportunity to not only deal with invasive plants such as ivy, but take on other projects to beautify and protect the park. The meeting place for volunteers is by the old amphitheater stairs next to the Piedmont Prairie (near the golf course practice fairway). If you are attending please wear long pants, closed toe shoes, clothes you don’t mind getting dirty, and a hat. Work gloves and water will be provided, but bring them from home if you can.
