Invasive natal grass is growing around rare eryngium plants in a restoration area and needs to be removed by hand
.


This effort will help to restore disturbed lands to pristine habitat, and will help to prepare the area for scrub oak sprout plantings to occur this summer.


You'll be taught how to identify and remove the invasive grass, and then we'll be moving through open sandy area and removing the plant.

We'll meet in the main parking area by the offices at Royce (directions below). Please wear closed toe shoes and bring your work gloves and a hiker's water bottle or similar to carry drinking water.


Directions

From the corner of US 27 and CR 621 in Lake Placid, go east on CR 621 1.7 miles to Hallmark Avenue on the left. Turn left on Hallmark. After 3.6 miles the road makes a sharp left and sharp right and changes names to Royce Ranch Ave. After a total of 5.0 miles on Hallmark / Royce Ranch Ave, Royce Ranch is on the left, marked by an FWC logo. Turn left onto the driveway and follow it back to the offices.
