Privet Pull

Privet Pull at Sweat Mtn Park

Privet is a non-native, invasive plant that out-competes native species. We'll be removing privet from the landscape. Join us to help restore habitat and native plant species!

We will provide safety vests, clippers, and tools that pull the privet right out of the ground by its roots.

Be sure to check the weather and dress accordingly. If we're working by a creek, you do not have to get your feet wet.

We will provide gardening gloves but you may bring and use your own.
