Calling all volunteers! The Sarah P. Duke Gardens is looking for a few good killers. Okay, okay, I'm only referring to the eradication of invasive plant species, not Carolina fans or anything like that. (I'm actually a closet tarheel, shhhhh...) Anyway, we're looking to start a group of volunteers dedicated to removing invasive plant species from natural habitats across central NC. Interested individuals will receive training in invasive removal from Duke Gardens staff, and will acompany staff members on trips to schools, nature centers, preserves, etc. in the piedmont region where we will lay waste to invasive plant infestations. Sound like fun? Our first trip will be to the Sylvan Heights Waterfowl center (www.shwpark.com) in Scotland Neck to help with a Chinese privet problem there. Email Stefan Bloodworth at firstname.lastname@example.org for more info.
