Description: Hoffler Creek Invasive Species Attack post “goatscaping”. This is a call for volunteers to join up and help clean out invasive vines in this142-acre preserve in the Hoffler Creek watershed. Goats have been feeding on the thick weeds since 9/17 which should now allow us to get in there and take down some invasive vines. We will meet Heather at the Visitor’s Center, where she will explain what she would like us to do. We need 10 or so volunteers to show up and join the fun. No experience is necessary. Masks will NOT be required if you are fully vaccinated for COVID 19. Wear long pants and long sleeve shirts to protect from ticks, heavy-duty gloves and sturdy closed-toe shoes. Hats, bug repellant, and sunscreen are optional. Bring your favorite hand and small battery-operated tools Also, bring plenty of water to stay hydrated. Who knows, there may even be an opportunity for lunch or ice cream at the end of the effort?
