Timber Lake Job Corps @ Boardman Wetlands on 4.9.2013
Once again, Timber Lake Job Corps ventured out all the way from Estacada to Jennings Lodge for a full day of adventure at Boardman wetlands. First, we continued to remove the invasive Blackberry that we were removing together in November. The roots didn’t stand a chance against Timber Lake! We were digging them out right and left, and making a huge pile of the carnage. We may or may not have also tasted a few worms in the process…
After we dug roots, we had enough room to plant some more native trees and shrubs! We planted about 50 plants in the Blackberry and Reed Canary grass area!
Thank you Timber Lake for great attitude and hard work!
