Honey Suckle Removal
Over 175 volunteers over the past 2 years have helped to clear and burn honeysuckle. Trees to keep are marked at the base of each tree so volunteers without experience in identifying honeysuckle could work on their own time. Several work groups included scouting troops and corporate work days. Trash is still being removed. After the honeysuckle was cut, mulch was laid over the cleared areas after using a weed killer spray per the recommendations of the DNR.
Ready to Transplant Native Indiana Wildflowers
There is a 5000 square foot area that has been removed of honeysuckle and is now ready for Native Indiana Wildflowers. The area is partly shaded and covered with mulch. This planting area is clearly marked with caution tape on the south side of this property, just west of the gravel parking area. Bring and plant your plants and enjoy this outdoor space. A great project for individuals at this time of social distancing during the COVID-19 pandemic. We appreciate your help in restoring this for wildlife habitat.
