This past Tuesday, Parrot Creek Ranch came out to Dahl Beach to help remove a lot of the invasive blackberry that has taken over the ground. Before we got started, we went over why watershed restoration is important, including why native plant species are good and why the invasive ones must be removed.
Fortunately, the weather was nice for us during the morning with the sun in the sky and not a cloud in sight. Everyone worked hard to cut out the blackberry and shovel the roots so it would not grow back.
We enjoyed working with Parrot Creek and we look forward to seeing them again!
