Privet pull on Thompson Cr 2-22-14 015

Our privet team in January: Wild South volunteers and Boy Scouts from Hartselle

One last chance to yank privet until next Fall!

Thompson Creek, SipseyWilderness (Alabama)

8:30 a.m. at Wild South office


Our work project on April 12 will begin on the west side of Thompson Creek at the end of Forest Service Road 208.  This is the side opposite the Thompson Creek trail.  We will work our way in from the road, so the hike will be short.  Privet pull on Thompson

Be prepared for off-trail hiking and ticks.

Bring a backpack with lunch, snacks, drinking water, work gloves.   Hardhat if you have one.

Wear sturdy, protective clothing.  We will be using sharp saws, axes and pulaskis in addition to weed wrenches.  Footwear needs to be sturdy and closed-toe; pants should be long.

Tools and personal protective gear will be provided.

If the lure of a satisfying day’s work in one of the most beautiful Wildernesses anywhere is not enough to get you out there, come to see the wildflowers, and pull a little privet while you’re there!
