Discovery Park - South Meadow Blackberry Purge06/16/2024


Come celebrate Father's Day in Mother Nature!

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.

All ages OK

10 out of 20 participants registered.

What to Bring

Bring work gloves (I'll have some loaners if you need to borrow), water to stay hydrated, long pants and sturdy boots. Dress for the weather. We will have wheelbarrows, tillers and heavy-duty shovels to accomplish our task. We'll take a water break halfway through the event.
