An enthusiastic Americore group of adults from Maharishi University, Iowa joined our crew on February 13th. This was a substantial weeding effort that helped clear a large part of the west volunteer loop. A total of 20 attendees accrued 80 work hours on this very enjoyable day.
Invasive species control make up a large part of our efforts and include the hand-pulling and composting of weeds. Dominant weeds included clidemia, waiawi, melastoma, erichtites, thimble berry and basket grass. We also, as is ususal, treated larger waiawi stragglers and come-back as well as consolidated dead wood from fallen trees and limbs.
