Native landscapes provide many benefits including;

  • Stabilizing shorelines
  • Supporting cleaner air and water
  • Providing wildlife habitat, including pollinator habitat

    Buckthorn management is a multi-year commitment.

    There's a little bit left to do to get the site cleaned up - it should be done on Monday.

    Then there will be a pause in work as we wait for the spring flush of vegetation. Weed control will occur through the growing season, and in the fall the site will be ready for seeding.
