This Saturday from 9 a.m. to noon, volunteers are invited to help remove ivy from the trees at the entrance to the park, as much as the slopes allow, organizers tell us.
“This is the first of what is hoped to be regular work parties at the park,” organizer Luke McGuff says. “There’s a lot to do there! It’s true there’s a serious problem with ivy at the entrance to the park, but the main body of the park features a healthy understory that needs only a little TLC to be a good example of a native riparian forest.” For more information contact McGuff at firstname.lastname@example.org.
