January 2016 Forest Park Service Project

A group of Post members met at the Birch Trailhead of Forest Park on Saturday morning along with a group of volunteers from the general public. After some quick welcome info, we went off trail onto a hill covered in English Ivy. We were volunteering with the Forest Park Conservancy and the No Ivy League helping them pull ivy to save the native ecosystem. We worked for around 3 hours and had a great time uprooting large networks of ivy. The hosts of the project even provided snacks, so it was a great experience overall!!

Volunteers planted 40 Sword Ferns and cleared 10,000 square feet of ivy.
