Description

 

Sponsor HRAC's first-ever community outreach event!

 

On October 13th, our members will gather at Hoffler Creek Wildlife Preserve in Portsmouth to help the foundation there with management and removal of non-native plant species. These non-native species, which have a competitive edge over the plants natural to our area, can quickly take over the preserve which would have a multitude of consequences including:

-displacing our local plants and the wildlife that depend on them for food, shelter or nesting materials

-increasing the risk of forest fires (due in large part to the density with which they often grow)

-altering soil formation, increasing water run-off and risks of mudslides

-changing the way that rainwater is processed by riparian zones and salt marshes that feed our local rivers and the Chesapeake Bay

 

Why Hoffler Creek? The HRAC Events & Education Committee really wanted to do a community outreach project this year, and with thousands of members who could potentially help, wanted to do something outdoor. This allows everyone to participate, while also ensuring that the work being done directly impacts our community 

 

What does the sponsorship include?

For $100, sponsors' logos will go on our event page as well as the back of the event t-shirts we are ordering. Sponsorship dollars will cover the cost of the shirts and refreshments for the volunteers. Bring as many people from your company as you want to participate in this event. Not only to give back to the community, but to network with other members!
