Spring work groups at Aquatic Park

It’s been a busy early spring for Aquatic Park EGRET. Plenty of planting, weeding, and cleaning.

Highlights:

  • March 2008 75 young people coordinated by EarthTeam gathered to commemorate the life and purpose of Cesar Chavez Chavez. The large group split into three smaller ones and tackled Shoreline trash pickup, removal of invasive vegetation, and spreading woodchips around native plantings (woodchips help the soil retain moisture while also keeping weeds from growing).
  • April Head-Royce 6th graders participated in a service learning project and spread woodchips along shoreline plantings, including three Cyprus trees that had been planted by 4th graders from Rosa Parks one year ago.

Upcoming:

  • On Wednesday, April 30, 15 high school students from College Prep will spread woodchips along Western shore of Middle Pond.

Come on down to see the results of all this work. If your group would like to help, contact Mark Liolios at mark AT lmi DOT net.
