Another Upstate Plant Rescue!
May 6 @ 8:45 am - 1:00 pm
This will be our 5th plant rescue at this active Michelin construction site, but the bulldozers haven’t yet reached the creek and more and different herbaceous plants continue to emerge….
So if you missed the earlier rescue opportunities, here is another one!
Email Frank Holleman to let us know you are coming: <[email protected]>.
Meet at 8:45 a.m. on Saturday, May 6, at the QT Station at Exit 60 (Highway 101) on I-85 between Greenville and Spartanburg (1840 Hwy 101 south, Greer). We will leave as a group and travel about 5 miles south on Highway 101 to the Michelin construction site. If you have a truck, please bring it.
Note — This is an active construction site for Michelin’s new distribution center: We must enter together as a group (no stragglers!); we must wear leather shoes or boots; and it is important that we have a list of those coming, so don’t forget to register!
Bring gloves and digging tools and 3-gallon pots if you have some. Leather shoes or boots are required at this site. It’s always good to wear long pants and sleeves; poison ivy may be present. We plan to finish at the site by noon and then transport the plants either to a location on the Michelin site where they will be taken care of, or to a location nearer to Greenville where we will care for them before transplanting. And of course, volunteers do get to take a few plants home!
