The Problem

Parts of our Forest area was being taken over by invasive blackberry plants. Our goal was to remove this invasive plant and restore natural habitat.

Our Plan

In collaboration with SOLVe (a state wide volunteer organization-, we organized a work party to remove invasive plants from a hillside and growing in the understory areas. The event was publicized statewide and members of the public were encouraged to participate. We also hoped to weed a butterfly wildflower garden, which has milkweed plants growing in it.
