DAVIDSON, N.C. – Community members are invited to the Beaty Park Celebration and volunteer workday on Saturday, October 5 from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at 832 Beaty Street (near the corner of Main Street and Beaty Street). The Davidson Lands Conservancy, with grant funding from the Town of Davidson, is coordinating the removal of invasive plants at the park. Volunteer efforts are needed for this event to remove invasive species and brush on the surrounding trails.
Children will enjoy planned activities such as pumpkin painting, gaga pit, World of Wonder (WOW) scavenger hunt, and more. Attendees can participate in guided walking tours, a chainsaw art demonstration, forest bathing meditation and light refreshments. We look forward to celebrating the conservation easement which was passed by the Davidson Board of Commissioners on Tuesday, August 13, 2019.
To volunteer with the invasive plant removal, interested residents can use the SignUpGenius link HERE.
“The Park at Beaty Street Task Force, a Davidson Board of Commissioner-appointed citizen advisory board, was not only instrumental in developing a concept plan for this park land but also for ensuring it would be preserved in perpetuity,” said Parks and Recreation Director Kathryn Spatz. “We are so grateful for the task force’s efforts.”
Parking is limited so please consider walking, biking, or carpooling with a friend or neighbor.
Special thanks to the Davidson Lands Conservancy, Bartlett Tree Experts, ViZ, Harris Teeter and Native Roots for their support of this event!
