Discovery Park - South Meadow Blackberry Purge04/09/2024


Help us clear the many invasive blackberry plants starting to encroach on the south meadow. This will take a combination of pruning and digging the blackberry out of the forest edge of the meadow. We will mulch disturbed areas with wood chips to keep weed seeds and resprouts at bay. Loppers, pitchforks, hand tillers, wheelbarrows and heavy-duty shovels will be used to accomplish our task.

Adults only

3 out of 20 participants registered.

What to Bring

Work gloves (I have some loaner gloves if you don't have your own), boots, long pants, weather appropriate clothes that you don't mind getting dirty and something to stay hydrated. We'll be taking a water break halfway through the event.

Where to Meet

Meet at the junction of the gravel meadow access road and the westerly parade grounds paved park road. This is 900' WSW of the large white radar tower and is a 10-minute walk from the south parking lot (please allow enough time to walk to and from the meeting site).
