Volunteers Invited! Habitat Restoration/Maintenance Work Party Feb 7, 9AM to 12 Noon

Meet along path between the intersection of Kenwood and Kirkwood.

Come help get rid of blackberry and English ivy from shoreline habitat area at our most popular Green Lake. Give native shrubs along the shoreline a chance to grow and thrive.

The work area for the morning will be along the eastern shoreline, a bit north of the Aqua Theatre. We will begin by weeding a previous FOGL planting and then move southward along the shore to remove blackberry and English ivy. Time permitting, and if there is interest, we may also visit a site along the turtle logs on the western shoreline to clear the view.

The work to be undertaken will be to remove as much of the above ground growth of the blackberry and ivy as can be accomplished. Be sure to dress for possible wet weather, and long sleeves to protect against blackberry thorns. Please no open toed shoes.

We will have a variety of tools for you to use and some gloves. If you have a favorite tool and your own gloves be sure to bring them along. Please bring your own tool and gloves to work with and maybe an extra to share.

Contact Maureen at mokwolek@comcast.net or 206-919-6630 or Andea andwatts@live.com if you have questions, and especially to indicate you wish to join in.

Hope to see you on February 7!
