Impressive blackberry roots removed!
Explaining how invasive holly is a problem in our natural areas
Restoration work continues at Ebright Creek park. On 12/13/14 further planting and blackberry removal was done. Thanks to the volunteers and native plant stewards the habitat next to the creek is being improved. And as an added treat, 3 pileated woodpeckers were spotted in the nearby trees before work began.  Most of us had never seen that many in one place at one time.
