Sunday Work Party, Jan 19

Winter greetings Friends of Lincoln Park! We've got a work party coming up soon. It's a Sunday, so we'll be doing maintenance, going back to an area we've worked previously to catch new invasives and anything we missed earlier.
  • Sunday, January 19th from 9am to noon
  • Meet at the kiosk in the north parking lot (Fauntleroy Way SW & SW Rose St)
  • Dress in NW layers to stay warm and dry with sturdy shoes or boots

And check out our fabulous new tool, a Big Foot on our blog friendsoflincolnpark.blogspot.com.  It's an improvement on the weed wrench, used to extract shrub and small trees. We are testing it for GSP. Grant and I both tried it and found it lighter, easier to handle and efficient. Hope we get to keep it!

If you have access to The New Yorker, check Michael Pollan's article, "The Intelligent Plant" in the Dec 23&30 issue. Amazing information on how plants interact with one another and with their environments. Makes me want to apologize to the ivy and holly!  Sharon
