Natural Resource Management Project Underway at Winding Creek Park and Bike Path

Thu January 18, 2024

A natural resource management project began at Winding Creek Park and Bike Path. Invasive brush and tree control will be carried out in the western buffer of the ponds both north and south of Village Road. This work is targeting primarily invasive European black alder (Alnus glutinosa) as this species is smothering both areas. In addition, invasive brush such as common buckthorn (Rhamnus cathartica) and bush honeysuckle (Lonicera spp.) will be targeted.

For more information on the invasive potential of European black alder, please see the following link from Morton Arboretum.
