Ivy Pull with Melanie at Warwoman Dell
RESCHEDULED: Saturday, February 17th 2024
Leader(s): Melanie Vickers, GAFW
Location: Warwoman Dell; Rabun County
Ivy Maintenance Pull – we’ll be going after the English Ivy that is trying to return after our previous pulls. Since January of 2021, Georgia ForestWatch, in partnership with the US Forest Service and Blue Ridge Bartram Trail Conservancy, has adopted Warwoman Dell Recreation Area to help control the spread of Non-Native Invasive Species (NNIS) further into the national forest. Warwoman Dell is a special place to many ForestWatch members and has historical and cultural significance. Due to the ease of access, the potential habitat for rare plants, and the continual suppression of native habitat caused by English Ivy, ForestWatch is continuing manual maintenance at this site without the use of herbicides. A huge thank you to Melanie Vickers for leading the effort and to all who have come out to help!
