Chew Crew's Botany Blitz

Saturday, September 30 9:30 AM

Tanyard Creek and Driftmier Chew Crew Sites

Join the UGA Chew Crew as we prepare for the arrival of our beloved goats! On Saturday, September 30th, and Sunday, October 1st, we will be taking inventory of the plants growing in the paddock around Tanyard Creek. (Because we want everyone to know how neat neature is!) This is a great educational opportunity for those looking to immerse themselves in the world of ecology, vegetation sampling, and plant identification. No prior experience or scientific knowledge is necessary, but you will be able to walk away from this event with the enviable ability to tell all of your friends abour invasive species and point out native plants! (You can tell its an apsen because of the way it is!) AND HOW NEAT IS THAT?
AND AS IF THAT ISN'T CONVINCING, IT'S GOING TO BE SUPER FUN BECAUSE BOTANY= A BLAST! 

We've broken down both days into shifts: on in the morning from 9:30 to 12:30 and one in the afternoon from 2-5. 

Please join us as we make Tanyard Creek a beaut! Not too often do you get this much neatness in one location! That's called nature! 
Long Live the Herd!

The Chew Crew

The Chew Crew is a research initiative on campus that utilizes goats as a method to control growth of invasive plant species, while avoiding the use of chemicals. The grazing sites are currently a segment of Tanyard Creek and, new this fall, the old growth forest behind the Driftmier Engineering Center.
