UW Restoration Ecology Network
Our Mission: Improve the Ecological Function of North Creek Forest...
Please consider attending one of these events to help us fulfill our mission:
1 English Holly Control
3 Support Bothell Parks
English holly is a non-native plant that spreads through the forest ecosystem exponentially. Seattle Public Utilities recently spent $90,000 to eliminate the troublesome plant from the Lake Youngs area.
We are going to get rid of the holly...
thanks to a $10,000 grant we received from the Rose Foundation, students from the UW Bothell, the cooperation and support of landowners and an energized force of volunteers.
Holly consumes daylight until nothing else can grow.
WHERE: We begin on the south end of the forest where the holly is thickest. SEE MAP
