Work Party with Ranger Dave: Invasive Ivy Removal

Sat. Mar 16, 2019 9:00 am

On a recent walk along trail 218, I discovered a very large patch of non-native invasive ivy, along with some holly trees, that need tackling with a large group of volunteers.  Trust me, there will be plenty of ivy to spread the cheer.  I have not seen a patch of ivy like this one in a long time in the ACFL.  Let’s meet at the Whistle Lake parking lot off Whistle Lake Rd.  From there we have a short 7 minute hike to the ivy.  It’s a little wet at the site, so if you have rubber boots please bring them.  If not, there is still ivy and holly outside the wet area.  Thank you!
