Honeysuckle Weekly Walking Group in the Deer Creek Greenway: Larson Park

March 12th 9:00 am - 10:30 am

Please join us for a weekly walking group and help eradicate honeysuckle along the Deer Creek Greenway! Our job is to make sure no honeysuckle that was cut in the fall of 2018 has the chance to regrow. We’ll be testing the “Cut and Strip” method of eradicating Bush honeysuckle. Instead of using chemicals, it involves cutting the plant down to 3 feet  in the fall or winter, then stripping any regrowth off the remaining stem on a weekly basis in the early spring.

We’ll start by rubbing leaves off re-sprouting honeysuckle and finish with a trail or park walk. This is a great way to help the environment, network, and get your morning exercise all in one fell swoop!

Please dress in layers, bring your own water bottle and wear sturdy walking shoes.

Please sign up for one or all of the events here.
