Sword Ferns that is! Students from Kevin Zerzan’s Environmental Science class at Gladstone High School has been working hard this trimester pulling English Ivy from a sensitive riparian zone along Rinearson Creek. This morning, students continued that battle by planting some native trees and shrubs that compete well with our nemesis ivy; Sword Fern in particular!
Students also learned about Grand Fir, Snowberry, Red Alder, Western Red Cedar and Salmonberry – all native plants we will continue to plant this school year to enhance habitat, provide root structure for stream banks and shade Rinearson Creek.
Thank you GHS!
