TN Promise Work Day at Tellico Blockhouse 6-25
TN Promise Work Day – Saturday, June 25 at Tellico Blockhouse (9am to 12pm).
Invasive species grow up and out, shading out native plants and encroaching hiking trails. Help save native wildflowers and keep scenic views open by removing privet. This is a great opportunity to give back to the park and get volunteer hours. We will be removing privet from the Tellico Blockhouse front gates.
Be prepared to pull, cut, and carry small shrubs. Volunteers must be at least ten years old. Please wear appropriate clothing and closed toe shoes. Bring work gloves and water; tools will be provided. We will meet at the Tellico Blockhouse parking lot.
In conjunction with the morning’s work a tour of the Tellico Blockhouse will begin at 11:00 from the parking lot.
For more information, or to register without a volunteer account, please contact Ranger Baghetti. 423-420-2331
