Habitat Restoration with the Schiele Museum of Natural History!
April 6th, 1-4 pm
The Schiele Museum hosts a roughly 8-acre natural area that has unfortunately been engulfed in invasive plant species. These species pose a threat to the long term stability and function of the nature trail by killing and crowding out native plants. The goal of this restoration process is to begin removing invasive plant species so that future efforts of native planting can be achieved. Target species include English ivy, Japanese honeysuckle, Amur honeysuckle, Chinese privet, Japanese privet, and Burford holly. Invasive vines will be cut off the base of trees, shrubs will be cut down, and crawling vines will be pulled from the ground.
Schiele Museum, 1500 E Garrison Blvd, Gastonia, NC 28054

This project will occur exclusively outdoors with the risk of personal injury from insects, wildlife, toxic plants, thorns, rough terrain, sharp tools, etc.
