Event Description

The City of Auburn Tree Commission invites volunteers to help remove invasive plant species along the Charlotte and Curtis Ward Bike Trail adjacent to Shell Toomer Parkway on Oct. 22 and Nov. 5. Work will take place between 8 a.m. and noon.

Volunteers will work alongside trained staff and Auburn Tree Commission members to learn to identify and properly remove common invasive plants such as privet, elaeagnus, Callery pear, chinaberry, mimosa and other common problem plants.

Volunteers should meet at the intersection of Shell Toomer Parkway and Canary Drive. Volunteers should wear long pants, closed-toe shoes and gloves. Extra tools will be provided, but volunteers are encouraged to bring pruners, lopping shears and small pruning saws, if available. This project is open to volunteers big and small; kids are welcome to help out!
