Come make the Grand Staircase even grander by creating a native garden at King’s Bend Scenic Overlook with the Friends of the Locust Fork River!

Depending on the season, join Jennah Gilley and other volunteers to plant, weed, add compost, mulch, pull invasive plants (like Privet and Kudzu) or terrace the slope to prevent erosion with logs and soil.

  • Bring drinking water, a hat, gloves and your smile!
  • To mulch: two five gallon buckets 1 shovel, 1 rake, and pruners.
  • For Privet pulling: a weed wrench if you have one.
  • For Kudzu/privet: pruners

You can join for an hour or 2, or 3.

This activity allows us to observe physical distance, and enjoy the outdoors.

FLFR is inclusive of all members of the community in our activities and events. FLFR welcomes your participation. Questions? [email protected].
