PAC begins work on Town of Tryon Kudzu Eradication Project

Published 8:44am Wednesday, January 30, 2013

The public may notice many changes at the site, including piles of vegetative debris near the road; however, the Town of Tryon has agreed to haul the debris away.

The public is invited to help with the project and attend scheduled work days on the site.  Interested parties should contact PAC by phone at 828-859-5060 or e-mail landprotection@pacolet.org.  Information about the project and scheduled work days will be provided on PACs website, www.pacolet.org, or on PACs Facebook page, www.facebook.com/pacoletarea.conservancy.  PAC will also be hosting an educational program at the site in the near future.

PAC is a 501(c)(3) non-profit conservation organization (land trust) founded in 1989 to Protect and Conserve the area’s natural resources (PACs mission).  PAC works with area landowners to ensure the long-term protection of their property through voluntary conservation easements (agreements) which enable landowners to maintain ownership of their property, preserving precious natural resources (open lands, forests, wildlife habitat, scenic vistas, farmland, stream banks, etc.), and potentially obtain significant federal, state and local tax benefits. PAC works diligently to provide leadership to encourage conservation and provide education programs emphasizing responsible land use practices to help save the places you love.
