Project in progress

What is your wish for this project?

I hope to remove invasive species from my grandmother's preserve and allow the native plants to grow and thrive. Also, I will work to maintain a balance between plant species in this diverse preserve so there is not an overbearing species.

How are you going to do it?

I will remove buck thorn, which is one of the most aggressive invasive species in my region. Around the natural pond in the preserve there are willows and other noninvasive species that are being smothered by the buck thorn. Almost five years ago a tornado traveled directly through the land and killed many of the pine trees, I will work to remove the dead and fallen trees to restore the peaceful serenity in the preserve.
