Thanks to all the fab volunteers that worked on our native plant garden on Nov. 8. We cut back trees shading out native plants, pulled out garlic mustard, and made room for the native lead plant, which should be a pretty purple come spring. And a special shout out to Brian Russart of Milwaukee County Parks who led us in our quest to provide habitat for migratory birds and increase biodiversity at South Shore.
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?
