On The Border Part II

November 10, 2012
7am til 9am

Councilman Larry Johnson,  Windchase Bay Condo owners, Councilwoman Maren DeWeese along with other neighborhood volunteers will meet on Scenic Highway at Hyde Park Rd. 
This beautification project is the second effort of its kind in this location bringing together two Districts within the City  for the care and keeping of our Scenic Bluffs.

Many invasive plant and tree species simply blow across Scenic Highway from private residences, sometimes even from a mile away, and plant themselves on the Bluffs edge.  As they begin to grow and take over,  the native plant species and native trees become over grown & choked out. 

On November 10th, volunteers will be removing these invasive species and the undergrowth from vines along the Scenic Bluffs Highway. 

Please join us from 7-9am on November 10th,  bring gloves, water, loppers, gas powered hedge trimmers and any other tools to trim back the jungle.

I can be reached at 316-7671 if you have any questions.

See you on the Bluffs!!!
