Join us for a community outreach project!

Friday, October 27, 2017 <> Hoffler Creek Wildlife Preserve

 

Sponsored by:

 

The Hampton Roads Apartment Council is planning a membership-wide community outreach event for this fall. Join us for a few hours on a Friday afternoon to make a difference in our community! The Hoffler Creek Wildlife Preserve needs help with the management/removal of the non-native plant species from the preserve. This includes:
-pulling weeds/vines
-trimming/pruning non-native grass and other plants
-removal of larger trees
-hauling away plant materials that have been removed

 

Why Hoffler Creek?

The Events & Education Committee wanted to provide an opportunity for our entire membership, which is a large group, to come together and work on something as one unit at one time. Hoffler Creek has a large need for volunteers, and some of the consequences of allowing these non-native plant species to overgrow are:

-displacing our local plants and the wildlife that depend on them for food, shelter or nesting materials

-increasing the risk of forest fires (due in large part to the density with which they often grow)

-altering soil formation, increasing water run-off and risks of mudslides

-changing the way that rainwater is processed by riparian zones and salt marshes that feed our local rivers and the Chesapeake Bay
