National Public Lands Day 2007

The wetlands saw 65 volunteers arrive last Saturday morning for a day of improvement and enhancement of our public lands here in west Eugene.

We removed blackberry along the bike path... planted lots of camas bulbs (boy that ground is hard this time of year!)... and the Invitrogen employees placed erosion control cloth on the bank of Amazon Creek. They have adopted a section of creek just west of Danebo!

Volunteers also removed non-native rose as well as english ivy.
The success of our wetlands relies on the collaboration of our community, working together to nurture our precious natural areas and improve them for future generations. Thank you so much everyone!!!
