2019 Liberty Hall workshop

Remove Invasives Partnership (RIP) of Franklin County hosted a workshop at Liberty Hall.  Participants learned how to identify and remove winter creeper, a non-native vine that ascends and kills trees.  Everybody stayed to work and got all the large hardwoods along the Kentucky River clear of winter creeper!
