Event Description

Celebrate National Public Lands Day in Tryon Creek State Natural Area!

National Public Lands Day is the largest volunteer hands-on activity of its kind in the nation. Held the last Saturday in September each year, the event brings together thousands of individual and organizational volunteers to restore and preserve the country’s public lands. For details on National Public Lands Day visit 

Saturday, September 27

9:00a.m. – 12:00pm, the Friends will provide a light breakfast and REI will provide t-shirts!

Join The Friends of Tryon Creek as we work to connect people with nature in order to preserve and protect it! Pull together to remove invasive English ivy and to protect our forest.  Ivy out competes our native plants, covers tree canopy stopping photosynthesis, takes over the forest floor and ruins precious habitat.
