Help Protect Crooked Branch Ravine Park

Habitat restoration is the process of assisting the recovery of an ecosystem that has been degraded, damaged, or destroyed.  In the case of Crooked Branch Ravine and other parks in our city, the problem is non-native invasive plant species that aggressively displace native plant species.  Non-native species simply cannot provide the support needed for the insects, amphibians, reptiles, birds, and mammals who live there.

Please join us for as we work to return this little park to a more natural state by removing English ivy, Japanese honeysuckle, privet and other non-native invasive plants.  We will also cut the ivy at the base of trees.

  • Saturday,  February, 5 from 1 – 3 p.m.
  • If you can’t stay the entire time, that is fine.  Every little bit helps.
  • Bring gloves, hand clippers, loppers & a small saw if you can.    An old screwdriver is sometimes helpful for prying vines away from the tree so they are easier to cut.
  • We will meet in the cul de sac at the end of Northrop Street.

Questions?  Let us know.
