Earth Day Weekend was a big one for the park. Thanks to a ton of help from the community (both students of the local schools, and boy scouts) we were able to get a lot accomplished this weekend.
The Fulton Garden was weeded, targeting primarily the invasive species of burdock, and celandine. Though celandine sports pretty yellow flowers, it is an invasive, non-native species that will prevent our native plants from growing. We got to enjoy the flowers for a bit, but have now made way for native plants to thrive.
It was quite impressive to see just how much we were able to do this weekend thanks to such great help. I am sure the Earth was a little happier for it this Earth Day.
