Planting and Maintenance

Items 6 and 7 on Site Plan

Our volunteers will weed, mulch and plant in deteriorating/eroding and high-use areas of the park, including areas adjacent to the path and around the renovated front social area. Our volunteers will also weed to curtail invasive species based on projects scoped by the Recreation and Park Department (e.g., Delairea Odorata a.k.a. cape ivy). Additionally, our volunteers will help create a brand-new habitat area for the endangered green hairstreak butterfly while beautifying the main entrance to the Natural Areas Program dunes. The proposed renovation project will enhance habitat for and appreciation of local flora and fauna that use or inhabit the 207,000 SF forested portion of the park.
