Autumn olive shrubs are an unwelcome remnant of the game farm that once existed in this area. Olive is a relentless invader so we need to implement a variety of control methods over the course of several years. Thankfully, we are making great headway in an area that we expand upon this morning. Volunteers cut down olives to make room for park staff to return and perform subsequent herbicide treatments. A small number of Japanese barberry shrubs are also dug up and discarded.

Please wear closed toe shoes and dress for the weather.
