Saturday, November 7th has been proclaimed Arbor Day in Weaverville!
To mark the occasion, the Weaverville Conservation Board is sponsoring a special workday in Main Street Nature Park.
After a spring and summer season of removing exotic plants from the Park, this special workday will be a planting day. We have a large number of native shrubs to be planted.
We will meet at the Pine Street entrance at the north end of the Park and work from 10 AM to Noon. If you can make it, the best tools to bring will be shovels and trowels.
We invite all participants to gather for a pizza lunch at Blue Mountain afterwards. We will need to know how many to expect, so if you can join us for the workday and for lunch afterwards please let us know by email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Club members will gather on Tuesday, September 15 to tend the flowers on Main Street. Group will meet at the clock at 9 am and work until done. The more hands the better!
Main Street Nature Park Workday
The regular monthly Conservation Board workday in the Main Street Nature Park is scheduled for August 22nd 10 AM to noon.
We have been making great headway with removing invasive exotic plants this summer and the Park is looking very good. We’ve been getting lots of compliments from folks passing by while we are working.
And there’s always so much to do, so we hope you can join us for a couple of hours. It’s so satisfying to see a tree or shrub emerge from beneath a shroud of honeysuckle and oriental bittersweet!!

Our spring beautification project for the Town of Weaverville will continue on Tuesday, April 21, at 9 AM. All members and anyone else who is interested please meet at the downtown clock to see where help is needed for the several beds we maintain on Main Street.
Please bring your gardening tools, we’ll need several shovels to make removing the plants and bulbs go quickly, watering cans, hat, gloves and your water bottle.
