Invasive Plant Removal Party, October 30th

From a press release:

Help native plants regain territory by joining other volunteers to remove non-native plants at a West Hartford Land Trust work party on Saturday, October 30th from 9 a.m. to Noon. Refreshments will be supplied. Please bring your own tools including gloves, shovel, and mattock (pick axe) and wear sturdy shoes, long pants and sleeves. Our goal is to remove the plants by the roots to prevent regrowth.

Volunteers will help remove Japanese knotweed, Asiatic bittersweet, winged euonymus (burning bush), privet, multi-flora rose, honeysuckle, and Norway maple in an effort to restore the area to a more natural ecosystem. Where invasive plants take over, they change ecosystems, crowd out local plants and displace native wildlife.

The WHLT is a conservation association dedicated to protecting and preserving open, undeveloped land in the Town of West Hartford. Our mission is to enhance the quality of life in our community through acquiring, conserving and preserving open space in West Hartford.
For the October 30th work party, meet at 1157 Farmington Avenue (park along the street) the entrance to the WHLT property is located at the rear of the home located at 1157 Farmington Avenue.

To register, call Jim Macosko at 860-216-5669 or e-mail him at jim@macosko.net.
INVASIVE PLANT REMOVAL WORK PARTY – SATURDAY, OCTOBER 30th 9 A.M. -12 P.M. (noon) AT 1157 FARMINGTON AVENUE, WEST HARTFORD.
