We had a really good maintenance day, this wet morning, at the Townsend River Walk & Arboretum (TRWA). Special thanks to our wonderful volunteers: Charlotte Miller (TGC, MG), Theresa Schehr (TGC), Scott Schehr (TGC), Allison Pearson (TGC), Rodney Pearson (TGC) and Mark Seder (TGC,MG). (TGC - Tuckaleechee Garden Club, MG - Blount County Master Gardeners).
General maintenance was done, as well as the creation of Stumptown (Allison & Rodney) and the removal of about a dozen medium sized Mimosa Trees of the right bank by the tunnel.
The TRWA is in great shape for this time of year, with the last two years of intensive invasive management showing incredible results. The river is well viewed from both paths and the start of the wildflowers and plants can be readily seen. There are even some daffodil blooms showing a hint of Spring.
Stop by and take a walk at the TRWA to enjoy the winter beauty,
Allison and Rodney made the most out of the invasive Princess Tree logs that were cut last year. They have created an area that we now call Stumptown.
