Estimated Public Opening:
Site preparation for the Morrison Woods Natural Area Vegetated Corridor Mitigation Area is scheduled to start spring 2013 (exact date forthcoming). Site preparation will consist of control of targeted non-native plants (Himalayan blackberry, English ivy, scotsbroom,and thistle) followed in the spring of 2014 by a native tree and shrub planting. Once plants are in the ground, establishment activities will continue for at least two years to insure plant survival and control of targeted non-native plants. Site preparation and establishment activities include mechanical and chemical treatment of targeted non-native plants.
Project Summary & Public Benefits
