Friends of Uplands Park Ivy Removal Impressive (November 30, 2013)

Kevin Webber, organizer and inspiration for our first Friends of Uplands Park Ivy Removal on November 30-2013 sends his thanks:

Big thanks to those of you who came out in the rain to participate in the ivy removal event today.  I’m impressed by the amount of material we were able to gather and all your hard work has certainly paid off in helping to ensure the ecological integrity of the park. I’m recording the region we worked in, what species were there, what was done, and what remains of the invasives. I look forward to more events with you all in the future!

From Kathleen:  Indeed, a  very successful and fun event. A hard working group enthusiastically took on very intensive workout with the ivy in the gentle drizzle. We also experimented with making ivy wreaths and our intrepid poop scooper picked up an amazing amount of poop in the area of the Midland entrance and this was much appreciated by those of us tromping around removing the ivy. Here are some photos.  I took many more photos but given the drizzle and my preoccupation with hauling tarps of ivy, the settings somehow got changed and many photos are blurred. So please send me photos if you have good ones.
