Help Needed with Loosestrife Wed Sept 14th 6:00 pm

On Wednesday, September 14th at 6:00 PM we will continue our efforts to suppress Purple Loosestrife from the pond. Purple Loosestrife is a problem for the pond because it chokes out native plants like cattails. Cattails are needed by native species like ducks and muskrats, and they also help filter the water that runs in to the pond.

Help Needed with Loosestrife August 20th 9:00 am

On Saturday August 20th we will continue our efforts to suppress Purple Loosestrife from the pond. Purple Loosestrife is a problem for the pond because it chokes out native plants like cattails. Cattails are needed by native species like ducks and muskrats, and they also help filter the water that runs in to the pond. For the last two summers we've dug out what we could, and it's clearly making a difference, this year there are noticeably more cattails and less loosestrife - but there's more to do this year.

Successful Spring Clean Up

Thanks so much to everyone for the great Spring clean up on Sunday 4/10. It was terrific to see so many folks out - more than 30 people were there to help.

A special tip of the pruning shears to Fred Ruff who tackled the invasive Oriental Bittersweet that was strangling one of the shrubs near the Lenox Avenue entrance on the North side.

Thanks for a Great 2010 Fall Clean Up

Posted in

The Fall 2010 Clean up was a great success!

Thanks to everyone for a terrific job at the clean up last Sunday. We had more than 25 enthusiastic volunteers who planted hundreds of bulbs. Look for the results of their efforts next spring. Each clean up we are finding less and less garbage around the pond and park -- our efforts are really paying off!

Special thanks to the City of Albany Department of General Services, especially Judy Stacey for providing us with the bulbs, dirt and tools.
