Spring ’24 Volunteer Opportunity: Remove Invasive Plants – Engage Green with SPACE

Engage Upstate is happy to announce our continued partnership with SPACE (Spartanburg Area Conservancy). Engage Green workdays are open to all Upstate students, faculty and staff – you don’t have to be affiliated with a course to participate.


Engage Green service days are a two-hour event where we remove invasive plants from the trail at the Upper Chinquapin Greenway. All tools are provided and no experience is necessary to join. Working alongside Upstate peers and the team at SPACE, you will learn about the plants we are targeting and be shown how to remove them!

On each workday (Except for Saturday 4/6), a shuttle at the CLC bus loop will provide transport to the Greenway and again back to campus when the work session is complete.

If you’re looking for volunteer hours, you will receive 2 community service hours per event.


Click the date you’d like to serve below for a direct link to that day’s sign-up form. Completing the sign-up form, including the liability waiver(s) on the form, is required in order to participate.


4/6 – Saturday*9am – 11am
4/11 – Thursday9am – 11am

*Students participating on Saturday 4/6 will not have the shuttle transit option from campus.

Tip: It’s important to make sure you fill out each required field on the form. You must fill out the entire form and then scroll back up to the top where the submit button will appear. If there are any problems with the form, it will tell you what you need to fix. There is a sign-up limit of 25 individuals per service date (except for 4/11 where 50 will be accepted).

The shuttle departs on time at the time indicated. It is highly encouraged to arrive ten to fifteen minutes early at the CLC loop to ensure a smooth check in and to ensure that you arrive in time for shuttle departure.

While we encourage you to use the shuttle transit when available, you may drive yourself to the Greenway at your own risk (423 Graham Rd., Spartanburg SC 29303).

If you have any issues or questions, please send an email for assistance.
