Photos from ESCI 302 Special Work Party

Let us know if you have a group of 10 or more people interested in a work party!

Sehome Hill Arboretum at Jersey Street entrance before work party 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!!
