BUST THOSE INVASIVES!
Join the Crew!
Volunteer efforts to clean up buckthorn around Diamond Lake have been so successful that there is minimal buckthorn to clean up in public areas this year. So, we will be removing honeysuckle and grapevines in addition to buckthorn.
• Meet at Pearl Park before 9:00 am.
• Tools, training, and refreshments will be provided.
• Bring work gloves and wear work boots or sturdy shoes.
Why the Big Bust?
Invasives including buckthorn, honeysuckle, oriental bittersweet, and grapevines crowd out more diverse native plants, limiting wildlife habitat. Our continued vigilance in removing as many of the invasive plants as we can find pays off!
