Conserve and Create at Bellemeade Park

Oct 17th @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

Conserve and Create at Bellemeade Park

The Friends of Bellemeade Park will be hosting a Conserve and Create workday in Bellemeade Park. We will be targeting the removal of invasive plants, other gardening activities, riparian/stream side restoration, pruning, mulching and general cleanup near the Bellemeade Community Center (adjacent to Oak Grove/Bellemeade Elementary School).

Be advised that there is poison ivy in the woods where invasive plants will be removed. Long sleeves are recommended and proper handling of the clothes you wear is important so the oil doesn’t touch someone’s skin. While we’re not trying to get rid of poison ivy (the berries are nutritious for some birds), it’s growing among the invasive Japanese honeysuckle & English ivy.

Ticks may be out — use repellent and check yourself thoroughly when you get home.

Please bring:
Refillable water bottle (full)
Work gloves
Clothing appropriate for this activity (layers are recommended so you can add/remove layers to maintain comfort)
Snack
Mask

Due to COVID-19 restrictions the event will be limited to 50 participants practicing social distancing.
