Area residents are invited to join Friends of the Blue Ridge Mountains for an autumn clean-up as the nonprofit continues its work to remove invasive vegetation from Blue Ridge Regional Park.
The work day will be held on Saturday, Oct. 15, from
10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Experts will guide volunteers in identifying and removing unwanted plants. Participants should wear long-sleeved shirts, long pants, work gloves and sturdy shoes. Bring clippers, pruning shears, or saws if possible.
Blue Ridge Regional Park is located off Rt. 601, about 3 miles south of Rt. 7. The entrance will be marked on the left and is opposite a wall with pyramid-shaped stone posts.
No sign up is required, just show up.
