Volunteer: Nandina Removal at UGA

Event Date: 
Wednesday, February 15, 2017 - 4:00pm


Join us in the first step towards eradication of toxic nandina berries on UGA's campus!

Nandina is an invasive species from Asia that has toxic berries. Birds, especially cedar waxwings, have been known to ingest the berries during the winter when food is scarce (it isn't their first choice). Birds that ingest nandina oftentimes die because of the toxicity if the berries.

This plant has been recognized by UGA as invasive and will be phased out. However, until UGA staff can get around to removing the plants, they are allowing us to organize the removal of the toxic berries.

Come out and join us! We'll meet at Tate on Wednesday, February 15 at 4pm.

Come prepared to be outside.
