EVENT

WHEN:
DATE: 08/18/2016
TIME: 9:00am - 11:00am (prompt start, estimated end)


DESCRIPTION: (Wear appropriate clothing & bring water! Below are some special instructions: what to bring, relative difficulties, interesting features, & carpooling directions.)

Terri Tipping has been leading an effort to try to remove some of the non-native invasive plants (primarily Multiflora Rose) from the Judge Morris section of White Clay Creek State Park. Over the last several weeks, we have cleared about a half mile from the parking lot counter clockwise around the trail. If we get enough interest may make this a regular Wilmington Trail Club activity.  Unfortunately, we have gravitated to Thursday mornings (Opposite the Thursday hikes) so far. If we get enough interest  to continue this as a regular WTC activity we’ll need to see if we can find a better time slot not opposite a scheduled hike.

We usually start at 9 and quit about 11. This is a dirty and thorny job, so long pants, long sleeves and work gloves are recommended. Most of the plants pull easily by hand but on a rare occasion will need a tool to dig the roots out (I have a cutting mattock and Terri uses a small shovel). Most of the work is in the shade, but bug repellent is recommended.

So, if you are still interested, let the leader know and they’ll keep you posted. Depending on the weather, we may start earlier or move to Friday.
We have permission from WCCSP for this project.
