Sat., Nov. 6
Meet at the bottom of the stairs at Dupont Ave S, north side of Minnehaha Creek
Join us for our 11th annual BUCKTHORN BUST. Please bring a mask, gloves and tools, such as saws, loppers, pruners, and shovels; we will have some weed wrenches available for sharing.
Buckthorn is bad because it:
- Out-competes native plants for nutrients, sunlight and moisture, choking out surrounding trees and plants and making it nearly impossible for new growth to take root under its canopy of dense vegetation.
- Degrades wildlife habitat and alters the natural food chain and growth of an otherwise healthy forest.
Hope to see you on Saturday, Nov. 6 at 9:30 a.m.!
