Help the FAIS Forest Fairy: Take Action for Earth Day
Friday, April 03, 2015
There has been a mysterious person working to restore the FAIS Nature Trail, seemingly all on their own. Over the last few months there has been noticeable change: drainage ditches cleared of blackberry and invasive Teasel; piles of ivy, blackberry roots and downed limbs; hedges of blackberry cane . . . all gone! Who has been tackling these plants that have stifled the vibrant potential of our forest? The first thought was the 1st and 5th grade classes that have been working together to improve the biodiversity of the forest with invasive removal and mason bee homes. Or perhaps it was Gilkey's environmental science students? But no, this extent of the work could not be completed in just one or two hours.
