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.
