Woods Committee News
Next Meeting: Monday, June 5, 2017; 7:30 p.m. in the Council Room. The July meeting is scheduled for the 3rd, same time, same place. Meetings are open to the public. Please join us!
Thank you to all the volunteers, young and old, who helped with our West Woods Clean-up. We also pulled our share of invasive garlic mustard. Our Woods Committee goal is to restore and sustain a healthy forest ecosystem by: removing and controlling non-native invasive plants, preventing and controlling over browsing of understory by white-tailed deer, and supporting reforestation by replanting with native trees and shrubs. Currently there is a project in progress in the East Woods by Invasive Plant Control (IPC) to control non-native invasive plants. They are using mechanical means, such as cutting, wherever possible, and spraying or painting where necessary. On certain days specific trails will be closed for the day so that they can complete their work. Please observe the signs and select another trail that day. We apologize for this temporary inconvenience as you hike or walk your dog in the East Woods.
The Woods Committee will also participate in the joint meeting on Monday, June 19, concerning the proposed Dog Park.
