Volunteer Workday- Humphrey Farm @ Conserving Carolina
Jun 21 @ 10:00 am – 2:00 pm

Details: If you’ve ever attended one of our volunteer orientations, you know who John Humphrey is. He is the owner of the first property to become a conservation easement when we were operating as Carolina Mountain Land Conservancy.
As the years go by, John continues the battle against non-native, invasive plants on his property, but needs your help. Join us to give back to the person who has given so much. We will help with non-native, invasive plant control and native tree thinning.
Ability to bend down and walk short distances is necessary for the day, but invasive plant ID will be taught. Wear closed-toe shoes, long pants, and bring water, snacks, and lunch.
Volunteers will meet at 10:00AM at the Humphrey Farm (772 Foster Creek Road, off North Mills River Road) or at our Hendersonville office at 9:30AM to carpool.
To RSVP or for more information email [email protected] or call Olivia at 828-697-5777 ext. 211
