Upstate Work Day at Sharpton Prairie
November 13, 2017 @ 1:15 pm - 3:30 pm
Join us for a short work day at a very special place North of Westminster, SC. In the foothills of Oconee County, along US Hwy 76, lies a gem of native diversity. It is a long, narrow sliver of native plants, many found in native prairies. Come out for a couple hours of volunteer work and see for yourself what a special spot this is. Our chapter keeps the site clear of trees and shrubs to maintain the prairie plant community. In return, Duke energy refrains from spraying the site during their power line maintenance. It is a win-win situation. In return for an afternoon of work we have the year round chance to view a great variety of native plants and collect seeds from a local source.
Participants should wear long pants, sturdy shoes and gloves, bring hand pruners and /or loppers. The pull-off parking area across the road from the site is limited. Meet at Ingles parking lot at 1:15pm in Westminster to carpool to the site. Email Dan <[email protected]>for info.
