This beautiful little green space along Reedy Creek provides food and shelter to birds and other wildlife, is home to some native plants that are no longer common in the city, and helps protect water quality by acting like a sponge during rain events. Sounds pretty important, doesn’t it? The problem is that English ivy and other invasive plants are rampant in some areas and habitat is being destroyed. That is why we need your help!
Please come help us remove ivy from the ground and from trees…
- Sunday, February 18 from 1 – 4 p.m. If you can only stay an hour, that’s OK. Every hour counts.
- Bring gloves and hand clippers. An old screwdriver is sometimes helpful for removing ivy from trees; we will show you how.
- We do ask that you bring your own water.
- The temperature should be in the mid 50s and comfortable for working outside.
