Report of Berkeley Lake workday June 28, 2017
Four GNPS members met at the Henderson Nature Sanctuary at Berkeley Lake to combat weeds, like Microstegium, mulberry weed, Mondo grass, liriope, English ivy, privet seedlings, and nandina seedlings. On this sunny June day, there were many birds singing for us. After the rain last week, there was water turning the paddle wheel. Green and gold, black cohosh, Rudbeckia fulgida ‘Goldstrum’, lyre leaf sage, beautyberry, and bottlebrush buckeye were blooming. The elderberry sported clusters of berries.
After weeding, three of us enjoyed lunch together.
The next scheduled workday will be Wednesday, July 26, 2017, 10:00 – 12:00, when we will again remove mondo grass.
