Thanks for a great 2015 Kal Haven Trail-blazer Event!
We had a another great Trail-blazer on Saturday May 9th, 2015. Thanks to our partners and sponsors. Check back for information on the 2016 Trail-Blazer event.
2015 planning is underway now. We are looking forward to sping, and getting back to work! Hopefully we will not find as much Garlic Mustard this year as we did in years past. This will be the 3rd year of attempting to rid the section of trail between F and G Avenue of invasive, non-native plants. Sue Hodapp, Master Gardener - Conservation Stewardfirstname.lastname@example.org.
Our first workdate is Saturday, April 20th, at 9:00. Meet at the G Ave crossing. Head North until we are behind the golf course. We will work up until Noon. Come if you can!
When Are You Able to Help?
Email me if you are interested in helping out later this summer, with hand pruning of small shrubs and trees, in order to retain a natural appearance along the shoulder of the trail. Also, we will start to remove invasive shrubs, such as honeysuckle and multi-flora rose, as they crowd out the eldeberry and spice bushes of which need to thrive.
All of this will be done between F and G Aves.
Also feel free to suggest a day/time suitable to you or your group. Master Gardeners and Conservation Stewards: earn your hours supporting this project. Scouts and Students welcome too. Please contact me at: email@example.com ~Sue
