'Day to Serve' Local event slated

In Fayette County, volunteers have an opportunity to help out at the Wolf Creek Park Wetlands Boardwalk.

On Sept. 25, groups, organizations and individuals are invited to help trim back the summer vegetation growth along the boardwalk. The boardwalk is a living outdoor environmental classroom with a unique perspective into West Virginia wetlands and is used for natural history and wetland education.

“Vegetation succeeds in overgrowing the boardwalk every summer,” said Rachel Davis, event coordinator. “With your help, we will spend 2 to 4 hours trimming it back again.”

Tools, gloves, supervision and a natural history talk will be provided at the event, sponsored by the New River Birding & Nature Center.

To RSVP, or for more information, contact Davis at rachel@wolfcreekparkwv.com or 304-574-4339.

The wetlands boardwalk is located off the Nick Rahall Greenway at Wolf Creek Park in Fayetteville.

On Friday, a group from Bridgemont Community & Technical College participated in Day to Serve by cleaning up a cemetery at Morris Creek in Montgomery.
