Work Party #3 on December 10


Please join the Friends of LBA Woods on Saturday, December 10, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. to continue our stunningly effective work removing invasive Scotsbroom and Himalayan blackberry.

Volunteers at our last two work parties cleared huge areas of these weeds from along the trails just inside the eastside entrance. Park visitors are noticing the difference and I am sure the native trees are evapo-transpiring sighs of relief!

From the eastern parking lot in LBA Park (3333 Morse-Merryman Rd. SE), just follow the mulched path to the gate into the woods. Signs will be posted and volunteers will be on hand to show you the way.

Everyone is welcome! Tools, gloves, snacks, tool-free tasks, rest breaks, camaraderie, and fun are all provided. Drop in when you can, stay as long as you like (but please sign in/check in first). You must wear close-toed shoes to work!

Children under 13 are most welcome but must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. Unaccompanied minors 14-17 must have a waiver signed a parent or guardian. We will have waivers on hand, but you can fill one out in advance¬†here:¬†Click on the “Waiver and Medical Alert” tab on the left.


Scotsbroom Be Gone!
