Help Restore North City Park
November 13 @ 1:30 pm - 3:30 pm
You can help save some of the North City Park trees by removing ivy that is growing up tree trunks and creating survival rings around the base of the trees. Left in place to grow the ivy can increase the risk of the trees being blown over in windstorms because of its large mass and “sail effect” of the vines in the canopy. Also, tree bark is more likely to have disease and rot problems and the tree health can be damaged by reduced access to light when the vines cover the tree’s branches.
You also could choose to spend some time on Sunday spreading mulch in the restoration sites recently planted to help improve the soil health and support root growth of our young plants.
All are welcome to attend and no experience is necessary; just an interest in having fun while protecting native habitat. We provide all of the tools and work gloves, but you are welcome to bring your own if you wish. We provide all of the tools and work gloves, but you are welcome to bring your own if you wish.
