- Saturday, March 29, 2008: The first spring
arboretum work day was a wonderful success! MaryJo Price, with the help
of student Daniel Fong, led over 30 students on an amazing removal of
Morrow's bush honeysuckle and garlic mustard! What a great turnout and
we hope to see you and your students in the weekends to come from 1-5
pm in the arboretum. Thanks so much MaryJo and Daniel!
Some activities in 2007:
- Saturday, September 22, 2007: Danny Welsch
had about 8 students show up in total. We got a lot of honeysuckle pulled,
and most of the existing pile down there chipped. The weather was great,
and we had a good time! We quit about 3:00 or so because the students
wanted to go to the Appalachian Festival.
- Saturday, September 15, 2007: About 20 students
participated in the clean up.
- Saturday, September 8, 2007: Total 12 people
came to the clean up today. We started at noon and ended at 2 pm. We
have pulled out a lot of honey suckles and weeds, and we made a big
pile. Here we would thank the volunteers: Hongqi Li (leader), Robert
Hoffmaster, Steven Darrow, Eniola Olawoye, Elizabeth Dori-Olawoye, Terrence
Boyliss, Tim Juchs, Leroy Hodnett, Elizabeth Quimba, Elizabeth (Lisa)
