WHAT: Critical blackberry removal project! The Leach Garden Friends, Wisdom of the Elders, the Blueprint Foundation, and JCWC are teaming up with students from David Douglas High School and community volunteers over the next several years to begin native restoration on this “Back 5” acres of the property. This event supports the work that needs to be done to the area. Check out this article for more details!
