Volunteer workday in Bankhead National Forest, May 16

Corinth glade

Sandstone glade restoration project

May 16, 2015

Join us as we embark upon the restoration of another one of the Bankhead National Forest’s rare glade communities!

Meetup time — 8:00 at the Wild South office 11312 Hwy. 33, Moulton, AL

or 9:00 at the Corinth glade  on County Road 57, south of highway 278, on the way to the Corinth Recreation Area, Double Springs, AL

Sign up at janice@wildsouth.org or 256-974-6166.  Please include your phone number and where you will meet the group.  Bring friends and family!  We need a crowd.

The glade is on the west side of the road, immediately adjacent to the road, if you plan to meet the group there.

This is a rather large glade, between 5 and 7 acres. We will begin the work of removing accumulated organic matter (such as downed trees), encroaching woody vegetation, and eradicating a considerable amount of non-native privet.
Bring:
  • lunch, snacks, drinking water
  • loppers if you have them
  • tick repellent
  • work gloves
  • hat

Wear long sleeves, long pants, sturdy, closed-toe shoes. We will provide necessary tools, hardhats, eye protection, etc.

We are grateful to our individual donors and the following funders for making our Helping  Hands Program possible:
