REMOVING INVASIVES AT THE SHERMAN ROAD PRESERVE IN OCTOBER
(See the flyer here)
Saturday, October 23 and/or Tuesday, October 26 between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m.
The Gates Mills Land Conservancy is inviting all residents and friends to the Sherman Road Preserve on Saturday, October 23 and/or Tuesday, October 26 between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. This magnificent meadow is located at the southwest corner of Sherman and County Line Roads.
What is the occasion? It is to ‘conquer invasive plants’ growing on this property. It takes a village, as is often said, to preserve our natural habitat here in Gates Mills. We never give up. But we are being challenged by honeysuckle, glossy buckthorn, knotweed and barberry, which have taken hold on this property. Over recent years, the GMLC has obtained grant funding to plant trees and shrubs that are environmentally suitable. And our board members and friends have volunteered their time to remove the invasives. We are making progress, but there is more to be done.
So please join us, the Gates Mills Garden Club and our licensed commercial herbicide applicator in October to uncover maple trees, cherry trees, viburnum and dogwood. Your neighbors, Mayfield School Environmental Center students, and other area volunteers will be there. Please bring your loppers and clippers. Wear long sleeves, gloves, pants, and boots as there is poison ivy!
To register, please send an e-mail to the GMLC at firstname.lastname@example.org Please include your name, phone
number and the date(s) you plan to attend.
