Horticulture Students Remove Invasive Plants On Land with High Conservation Value.





John Sherman's Horticulture Pest Management Class took a strenuous 2.5 mile hike up to some beautiful ridge top property in Sandy Mush. At the top Hanni Muerdter, Stewardship and Conservation Planning Director at the Southern Appalachian Highlands Conservancy (SAHC) and Allison Kiehl, Stewardship, AmeriCorps Project Conserve Member, explained the mission of land trusts around the country and role that SAHC plays in conservation in Haywood County, the Roan Highlands and beyond.

Managing these properties for invasive exotic plants like Oriental Bittersweet is an ongoing challenge. Students learned how to properly remove invasive plants. SAHC provided all the students with a complimentary one-year membership for their efforts.
