The plant on the left is a re-emerging Empress Tree, which is an aggressive, non-native tree that is attempting to crowd out (and shade out) native plants in the area. This is one of seventeen invasive plants species that have been identified along the trail of beautiful Bass Lake. South Wake Conservationists is planning a workday to begin removing some of these invasive plants on Saturday, September 24, 1:00-4:00 PM. We want to give our native plants and the local ecosystem health in general the best opportunity to flourish! Won’t you help?
We will meet at the main deck outside the office at Bass Lake Park in Holly Springs. Tools will be provided, but please plan to bring gloves and water. Our NCWF conservation coordinator, Luke Bennett, will bring a custom-developed guide to the invasive plants that we will find there, so it will be a great hands-on learning experience. Hope to see you there!
