Discovery Park - South Meadow oak and …11/25/2023


We'll be preparing tree holes and soil for planting of new native trees (Garry oak, Pacific madrona and Douglas hawthorn) in the south meadow, replacing invasive exotic trees that are being removed. Our task will include removing sod, amending the soil with wood chips, wheelbarrowing wood chips, planting trees, and camas and mulching the new tree. This work will be done throughout an expansive area of the south meadow so these trees will be widely scattered, forming a savanna-like ecosystem.
