Join us on June 1st for National Trails Day! National Trails Day is a celebration of the wonderful trails that allow us to observe and appreciate natural areas. We will be at the Sally Pearce Nature Trail (located next to 602 1st St.) on Tybee Island laying down mulch from 9 a.m. to noon. Currently, there are many roots and trip-hazards on this trail. By adding mulch, we can make this trail a safer and more enjoyable experience for everyone!
All necessary tools and gloves will be provided, in addition to snacks and refreshments. Parking is available in the lot at 602 1st St. Tybee Island, GA 31308. All ages welcome, and community service credit is available.
Forestkeepers for the month of June will take place at the Catholic Cemetery where we will be removing excess Spanish Moss from trees. Spanish Moss is an epiphyte, which means it is a plant that lives on another plant but is not parasitic. Other examples of epiphytes include Ball Moss and Resurrection Fern. However, if too much Spanish Moss grows on a tree, it can stunt the tree’s growth by covering leaves and can break small branches from the moss’s weight.
