Looking for a great way to spend your Valentine’s Day? How about participating in The Nature Conservancy’s inaugural Work and Learn Party in Hickory Nut Gorge?
Participants will spend the first part of the day removing three invasive plants, English ivy, honeysuckle and privet, from the Conservancy’s Bat Cave Preserve. All are evergreen and should be easy to spot in the winter landscape. After completing invasive pulling, an expert will teach you how to identify trees by their buds and bark.
Participants should bring a bag lunch and water. Work boots or other sturdy shoes with ankle support are recommended as well as long-sleeved pants and shirts.

This is the first of a series of Work and Learn Parties to be held by the Conservancy in Hickory Nut Gorge.
