This event is a restoration project for the forested area at LeRoy Haagen park. A multitude of animals call this forest home: red tail hawks, native ground bees, rabbits, and is visited by deer and the occasional kestrel and bald eagle.
Typical projects vary depending on the time of year, but include English ivy, Holly, and Himalayan blackberry removal, and mulching for Shiny Geranium and Herb Robert control. When this event began in 2015, there was a near carpet of eight different invasive plants. Because of that, there are very few young native trees. From September to February we will be planting a small number of native seedlings gathered from neighbors.
Este evento es un proyecto de restauración por el bosque de LeRoy Haagen Park. Un gran cantidad de animales tienen un holgar en este bosque: halcones colas rojas, abejas nativas, conejos, y visitado de ciervos y a veces un cernícalo y águilas calvas.
Proyectos típicos varia dependiente la estación del año, pero incluye extracción de hiedra inglesa, acebo, zarza Himalayana, y cubriendo con mantillo geranium lucidum, y geranium robertianum. Cuando empezó el evento hace tres años, había casi una capa de ocho plantas invasivas. Por eso, hay muy pocos árboles jóvenes nativos. Desde septiembre hasta febrero plantáramos unos plantones recogidos de vecinos.
