Maintenance at the Restoration Site

Today we focussed on our Hillside Restoration Site at the Evergreen Lane Entrance.  We weeded the planting beds and began eradication of the Cape ivy and Poison Hemlock that are trying to take over the area between the planting beds.  Lots of good news:  the plants ALL seem to be healthy, and the False Solomon’s Seal is blooming!  And, lots of new ferns and some native blackberry are emerging on the hillside.  Fireplace Plaza also received some much needed TLC.

Next Workday in Garber Park:  Earth Day on Saturday, April 16 from 9AM-Noon.  Meet at the Evergreen Lane Entrance
