Join the Siskiyou Land Trust and your Rotarian hosts Tom Hesseldenz and Glenn Harvey at 9:00 AM this Saturday to begin removing teasel from the SLT’s new Kingston Meadow trail system just south of City Park. We will meet at the north end of Kingston Road. Volunteers will need long sleeved shirts and long pants, hat and gloves, and water. Bring garden clippers or shears and a plastic 5 gallon bucket (or any bucket) to put the clipped heads into. Not sure where to meet? Use Glenn’s address 1422 Kingston Road in GPS.
Tom Hesseldenz will provide detailed instruction to volunteers for this work that involves walking in the meadow and clipping the flower heads to remove the seeds so that they cannot continue to invade the meadow next year. For those with strong backs, the strong stalks can also be pulled up. Workers will put the clipped heads into trash bags to be disposed of later. We will work from 9:oo AM to noon.
This is a great opportunity to help thin out an invasive species to restore the natural meadow habitat. We look forward to seeing you there! Please call Glenn at 530-925-9287 with questions.
