Our next South Shore Park (Watch) meeting will take place on Tuesday, February 10th at 7 pm. Due to a scheduling conflict, we will not hold the meeting on the usual Thursday night.
On the agenda so far is the name change decision. At our October meeting, the group voted to change the name of South Shore Park Watch to better reflect the comprehensive mission of our organization. Suggestions for a new name included:
Friends of South Shore Park
South Shore Park Friends
If you have another suggestion for the new name, please email back your idea or share that idea at the Feb. 10th meeting. We will vote on the new name at that meeting.
The executive committee (Chad, Cary, Katie W., Jane) need your ideas for the upcoming year’s agenda. Please email any ideas you have for monthly meeting programming, events, or issues that the group should be addressing over 2015. We will also brainstorm ideas during the Feb. 10th meeting.
We took a break from meeting in December, but don’t worry, we will be back Thursday, January 8th at 7 pm. Meet inside the South Shore Park Pavilion. And stay warm this holiday season!
Brian Russart of Milwaukee County Parks will join us on Nov. 8th for a work day on South Shore’s native plant garden. This is a great opportunity for neighbors to come out and learn some basic invasives identification, as well as learn what techniques can be used to keep invaders off your property. Wear gardening attire. See you there!
Meet in front of the South Shore Pavilion at 9 am. We will head over to the native restoration site along the bike path around 9:15. Just head south on the bike path from the playground. We’ll be easy to spot.
RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org so that we know how many tools to bring.
Unsure of what to pull? Which plants belong?
