Reedy Creek and a small tributary, Crooked Branch, flow through Crooked Branch Ravine Park. This small, passive park is home to many native trees, shrubs, and perennials that could be lost to advancing invasive plant species, particularly English ivy and privet.
Please come help so that our native plant species can thrive. To thank you for coming we will have available 2 species of native plants to give away, Monarda fistulosa and Boltonia asteroides, available on a first come, first served basis.
- . Sunday, April 18 from 1 – 3 p.m.
- We will meet at the end of Northrop Street where there is a path into the park.
- Map to meeting place.
- Bring gloves, pruners, and, if you have one, a small saw for cutting large ivy vines.
- Only have an hour to spare? That’s quite alright. Every little bit helps.
The area where we will be working has oak, hickory, maple, black gum, fringe trees, wintergreen, cranfly orchids, and other native species. The diversity of species in just this small area speaks to the value of this park.
