Remove Exotic Plants at the Nature Conservancy's Tiger Creek Preserve!
This is one of five volunteer work events helping to fight exotic plants on National Public Lands Day on the Lake Wales Ridge. Exotic species crowd out native species and cause environmental harm, and your effort removing invasives in a conservation area will be very helpful!
