Parrot Creek at Dahl Beach

Once again, the Solve GreenTeam had the pleasure of working with the young men from Parrot Creek. There were a few familiar faces mixed in with the rest, who had not yet been out to Dahl beach. We reviewed our lecture on watersheds, healthy river ecosystems and native vs. invasive plant species. We sent the group out into the field to tackle the stew of invasive species. A few working on blackberry, others ripping the morning glory off the trees. At the end of the day a lot of space was cleared and vines that had been strangling the natives were lying in a heap, strangling each other. It is always a pleasure to work with the young men of Parrot Creek.
