Invasive Plant Removal and Nature Walk at Proctor Creek and Grove Park
Trailblazers invites the Georgia Tech community to participate in the continued restoration efforts of this special and unique remnant old-growth forest.
We’ll focus on knocking out a small section of remaining Kudzu and cut English Ivy from trees in the streamside forest. We’ll show how to recognize high-value forest areas by the trees and plants we find and we’ll end with a short walk to a beautiful section of Proctor Creek or possibly walk thru the high forest near the ridgeline.
We’ll walk approximately 1-1.5 miles on natural trails along with some off-trail locations. Please wear long sleeves, long pants, sturdy shoes, and work gloves are recommended.
Please bring water, sunscreen, and an Epi-pen if you have any allergies.
Due to Covid-19 precautions, we are not currently re-using gloves, so please bring your own gloves, or we can provide a brand new, unused pair for $5 you can take home with you (and use next time).
We’ll supply tools such as clippers, loppers, small saws, and digging tools.
