We have been fighting invasive olive since the park opened. On this morning, we continue our work to rid the MPEA of this woody pest. Our energy focuses on expanding the same project area treated in September. Secondary to the olive cutting will be removing invasive Japanese barberry when found. Repeat efforts by volunteers have resulted in terrific visible progress at this site meaning that each year we should be able to plant more natives in place of the invasives!
