Volunteer Work Session Removes Invasive Plants from Three Acres at Armstrong

We held two volunteer work sessions for Invasive Species Awareness Week at the Armstrong Preserve and Education Center, where we manage a series of outdoor classrooms as native habitats.  Five people attended the Saturday session and twelve came out on Thursday July 13.  With 9 students and 3 retired volunteers, plus 3 PRLC board members, we successfully met our goal of removing invasive shrubs from three acres of the Preserve!

Over the course of a few hours on two mornings, we removed barberry, bittersweet, wineberry, mile-a-minute, and more from the Armstrong vernal pool, meadow, and in the forest along the blue and white trails.  Additional work by our summer interns will proceed along the yellow trail next.  Please sign up at landsteward@prlc.net to join us.
