Colora: Invasives Removal at Woodlawn and Trash Pick-up along Firetower Road - Sunday April 9th - 9 am - 11:30 am
Invasives removal organized by Sarel Cousins, Wildlife Habitat Council and the West Nottingham Academy Green Team. Trash pick-up along portions of Waibel & Firetower Roads organized by OWA.
Results: 40 volunteers split into two groups. One group picked up 68 bags of trash, 3 tires and miscellaneous objects along 2.6 miles of county roads from West Nottingham Academy to Dr. Jack Road while the other group focused on invasives removal at Woodlawn, making a big dent in the tree-strangling vines, multiflora and garlic mustard. All completed in 2 1/2 hours!
Thanks to Sarel for providing the venue and to all who participated. A special shout out to West Nottingham Academy for bringing two busloads of students to help.
