Greensboro Beautiful Honors Faculty
Faculty members Lynn Moseley and Kyle Dell are among the recipients of an award from Greensboro Beautiful for their work on a public-private partnership to battle invasive plant species.
Ken Bridle of the Piedmont Land Conservancy and Brooks Mullane with the City of Greensboro also were recognized with the Robert L. Garrard Award of Distinction for their contributions to the partnership. The team has raised awareness of the problem posed by invasive exotic plant species and has organized workdays to remove invasive plants from city parks and the Guilford College Woods.
At Guilford, students, staff and faculty have worked together to remove species such as autumn olive, akebia and multiflora rose. A grant from REI and the Piedmont Land Conservancy was used to purchase tools for the job.
The next workday in the Guilford College Woods is planned for 10 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 6. For more information about the workday, contact Kyle, an associate professor of political science, or Lynn, a professor of biology.
