Woodlands Restoration

Woodlands Restoration (and garlic mustard harvest)

Please join us at The Little Woods (Clearview and Patricia) every Monday and Thursday evening in June from 6:30 to 8:00 pm, to help with the woodlands restoration. We are removing garlic mustard (a edible but invasive plant) and planting native ground cover and shrubs suitable for a woodland garden. The corner lot is a City property. Restoration will extend to several prominent locations in the NCC woods (Champlain Woods).

Bring gloves, shearers and small shovels if you have them. Contribute as much or as little as you can.

Organized by Catherine Shearer and the Environment Committee.
