The schedule shown below is primarily for the benefit of regular Coalition volunteers, and it contains references that might not be understood by the general public. However, if you live in the Spartanburg (South Carolina) area you are invited to help us eliminate and control kudzu in our communities. All work locations are in Spartanburg, unless otherwise noted. You can also meet us at the YMCA located on South Pine St. about 15 minutes before a scheduled session to "convoy" to a work site. Contact us for more details.
