Landscape Workday: May 15, 2021

We hosted 19 adult volunteers and four young adults on Saturday, May 15th, to begin a new restoration project in Indian Gardens. Part of the restoration was to pull invasive garlic mustard that was in full bloom. We filled the Village’s truck with 33 bags. FLOS has been removing garlic mustard from Indian Gardens for several years. It was very encouraging to see the areas where we’ve removed it is healthy and free of garlic mustard.

FLOS is beginning a long-term project to restore Indian Gardens area. Michael Collins, Village Forester, and Shawn Sinn cut brush and trees while we pulled garlic mustard. In the rain, volunteers made a large brush pile to be burned later. We cleared approximately 30 feet of the riverbank. You can see the river!
