Discovery Park - Lizard Haven04/19/2024

Activities

Help us restore a new site that overlooks the south meadow with native meadow and forest edge shrubs and forbs. With the guidance of the UW Restoration Ecology Network, we'll be working in one of the most scenic restoration sites in the city. We are calling the site Lizard Haven due to the many northern alligator lizards seen in the area. Our primary task will be planting new plants but we nay also need be digging up blackberry roots and move and spread wood chips.. We'll have pitchforks, rakes, hand tillers, trowels, wheelbarrows and heavy duty shovels to accomplish our tasks. As an added perk, we will get a short lesson on restoration ecology techniques or philosophy from current students of the curriculum. check out the project website for more information: click here
