Xylem Helps Sound Rivers with Invasive Species

Volunteers

Posted on October 11th, 2017

On Friday, October 5th, 13 volunteers from the Xylem company spent the morning with Sound Rivers executive director Heather Deck and the City of Raleigh’s Invasive plants coordinator, Leigh Bragassa. The crew worked for several hours removing invasive plants, like English ivy, from a forested riparian buffer along a small stream and part of the City’s greenway system.

Removing invasive plants is important to allow our native plants to thrive. Research shows that native plants provide greater water quality benefits. So many thanks to Xylem company and volunteers for their work to beautify Raleigh and keep our waterways clean!
