The Amy Lambert Crew
One month ago Professor Amy Lambert's class opened the UWREN restoration season with a team who produced a mountain of cut blackberries. Since then the UWREN Team has guided additional work until they are now way ahead of the normal schedule.
Why get so far ahead? This year's UWREN Team is tackling an ambitious project even larger than last years. The overall footprint is smaller but the amount of blackberries offers a daunting challenge. That is why volunteers willing to help restore North Creek Forest are so importation to success.
Carolyn on the BBQ
We got food!
We will fire up the BBQ this Saturday and have some sodas on hand for your thirst. You can expect hamburgers, hotdogs, and veggie burgers.
This Saturday, November 17th a big team will attempt to clear a large stand of blackberry canes, some reaching far up into the trees. Students found a "trophy" vine last month. There is another hiding in there somewhere!
We start at 11 and end at 3.
You can download a map to the site HERE.
We got the "big one".
So the record vine is about 25' long. But lurking among the remaining stand of blackberries could very well be a record breaker. Last year yielded several vines over 30'. If you like trophy hunting for giant weeds you won't want to miss this Team event:)
Please join us as we repair the edge of this magnificent forest. See you Saturday.
