PARK VOLUNTEERS


Community volunteers met last Friday with City Parks staff Janette Harvey and Bernie to learn about Japanese Knotweed, an invasive species that is now showing  up in the park.  Several large clumps of this tall species were cut down by two very enthusiastic young helpers, AJ and Jamie, with a little help from the adults.
Forty shrubs and trees were also planted at the G20 site to increase the wildlife habitat there.  Species included elderberry, dogwood, cedar and silver maple.
