LeRoy Haagen 4th Saturday March Event
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 two years ago, 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.
