Good neighborhood group effort and lots cleaned up and beautified.
Awesome Day with our wonderful CG group to help make Bartholomew park even more beautiful
Organizers were well prepared, timing was about right (didn't quite finish). No one told volunteers about some free goodies from sponsors, so some left without them.
Attending the project leader meeting.
Met with Alberto Pérez and Nate Thayer to review Tar Branch Restoration Plan and decide on project for It's My Park Day. Showed them my technique for girdling invasives and the difference between its results and those of the chisel-based technique.
Determined that new growth along the creek banks makes it unwise to work there—avoid trampling the native forbs. Best prospects seem to be removing downed junipers and clearing ligustrum from Area 3.
Had a great morning meeting neighbors and distributing mulch at Walnut Creek Trailhead on It's My Park Day. I actually found a buried car hood that we were then able to extract after much effort and a little help from a neighbors heavy equipment! :-)
