Invasive Plant Removal and Tree Planting with HAWK!
April 6th, 1-4 pm
Habitat and Wildlife Keepers (HAWK), the first chapter of the North Carolina Wildlife Federation, started out as the “Squirrel Lake Team”, a group of gardeners and wildlife enthusiasts who adopted Squirrel Lake Park in Matthews and turned it into a demonstration site for how individual home owners could provide the five elements of a habitat and create a haven for wildlife. Volunteers will help restore wildlife habitat at two Mathews NC Parks by clearing Kudzu, Wisteria & Honeysuckle, as well as planting trees.
Squirrel Lake Park, 1631 Pleasant Plains Rd, Matthews, NC 28105
