Volunteers Matter

 Mary Ann Harrison, of Catawba Lands Conservancy granted us permission to share her words of thanks to NCNPS volunteers after a morning workday at Catawba Wildflower Glen last week. Thank you also to Jean Wilson for sharing her photos. As a matter of fact I hear the group had so much fun, they are begging to come back and work some more…stay tuned for invasive plant removal day part 2! Volunteers really matter….and  are so very much appreciated. NCNPS Southern Piedmont Chapter needs lots of helping hands in April for Earth Day events April 22 and April 29. Please raise your hand and say yes!

Dear Dedicated Invasive Weed Warriors!

Thank you sincerely for donating your time and your sweat-equity to preserving plant biodiversity for our community.  It was wonderful to meet such a great group of dedicated and hard-working people.  Mary Stauble mentioned to me after the workday, “It was a good feeling to see invasives being removed from such a special spot.  Working together you really see a difference even in a few hours”.  I couldn’t agree more.  Thank you!  Also, a big thank you to Mary Stauble for being such a dedicated steward of the Wildflower Glen and initiating a clean-up like this. 2017-3-3 Catawba Glen clean up (31)

Here is the link that Mary mentioned for the “Green Invaders” video.  It really is an interesting watch!

All in all, thank you for preserving plant biodiversity.  Please continue to enjoy land preserved by Catawba Lands Conservancy and consider joining us for future workdays and programs.  This program was organized by Catawba Lands Conservancy to introduce you to the properties that we conserve.  We can’t conserve these places without you.  If you haven’t already, please consider supporting Catawba Lands Conservancy  by becoming a member so that we can continue to protect beautiful places that you love.
