What to expect: Little Blue River Watershed Coalition (ST 2428) and Friends of Lakeside Nature Center (ST 175) will be planting native food source bushes and trees, such as deciduous holly, wild plum, and Ozark witch hazel. These food-bearing species will replace invasive Asian bush honeysuckle that has been removed along the trail at the Nature Center. Join us as we discuss why bush honeysuckle is disruptive to the watershed and help us plant native replacements as a wildlife food source.
What to bring: Come prepared for working outside in dirty, possibly muddy, places. Dress for the weather. Otherwise, shovels and other equipment will all be provided!
