Come join us Friday, January 5th to help maintain the bioswale at Greenland's Taylor Park. Bioswales allow water from impervious surfaces to infiltrate into the soil, improving water quality while providing habitat for insects, birds, and plants.
Maintenance will include protecting native flora like native Yellow honeysuckle (Lonicera flava) by removing invasive plants like Japanese honeysuckle, Chinese privet, and Amur honeysuckle. These invasives choke out native flora, destabilize ecosystems, and threaten natural infrastructure like the adjacent bioswale. Volunteers will learn about bioswales and how they work, identify native plants and remove invasive plants.
We'll meet at Taylor Park and work from 10am to 12pm. Warm clothes and sturdy shoes recommended. Gloves, tools, and drinks will be provided.
