  • English Ivy has taken over this area!
  • There are also a bunch of tall English Holly trees
  • Then students from Eli Loomis's ESCI 302 arrive
  • and go to work
  • pulling English Ivy
  • and more English Ivy
  • and more English Ivy
  • and even more English Ivy!
  • they also remove English Holly and Cherry Laurel trees
  • and a bit more ivy - which also works great as a camouflage Hallloween Costume!
  • Resulting in two huge tarps of invasive species removed
  • in one hour!! Way to go ESCI 302!
  • This is how it looks after with bare ground for new plantings
  • and the native Sword Ferns are now visable again
  • Next step is to plant more native species and add mulch to limit the return of unwanted species.
  • These weeds will go to Western's high heat compost pile where they will die and can be reused around campus as mulch
  • They also collected a good amount of litter! LEAD and the Environment Thank You!!
