Parrot Creek Returns to Troge

This week, Parrot Creek returned to Troge to help restore some of the area next to the creek. The volunteers removed a lot of invasive blackberry and dug out their roots to clear the ground.

Parrot Creek also got to try something new today by spreading straw bales around the ground they had cleared. The group seemed to have a lot of fun with this, for it was something they had not yet tried.

The volunteers also had a nice treat at the end when they found a tall blackberry bush filled with delicious blackberries. Thanks for all of your help, Parrot Creek!
