Well, the sun didn’t shine but the rain held off long enough for a great crew of volunteers to beat back the invasive Himalayan Blackberry and Vinca creeping ever-outward. While one crew protected Redwood and grass plantings from encroaching Blackberry, another attacked a band of Vinca (non-native periwinkle) skriting the edge of the fairway. Beating back the Vinca will keep the need for herbicide use along the creek to a minimum. This will also provide a great area for riparian plantings. After all the hard work a handful of us hiked deeper into the golf course to admire previous restoration areas – now flourishing along the water. Thanks to the helpers of all ages who made it yet another successful saturday!
