Last Thursday, a group of Centro Cultural students came out to Council Creek to help mulch the native plants and remove invasives from the area. They also learned a lot about macro-invertebrates and got to see a few of them up close!
Although the volunteers were very young, they were very helpful in tackling the invasive Reed Canary Grass. The students were all very excited to help restore the area and make it as beautiful as possible.
After reading The Lorax to the students, they were even more excited to help the native plants. They did not want the native plants in Council Creek to become like the Truffula trees from the book.
Thanks for all of your help, Centro!
