It isn’t a great secret that Uplands Park is filled with non-native species, especially the highly-invasive Scotch Broom and Daphne. Thankfully, there is a group doing something about it: Friends of Uplands Park.
Founded by Margaret Lidkie, who has been leading broom and daphne eradication efforts in the parks for years, and Kathleen Matthews, Friends of Uplands Park has granted $1000 by the Muncipality for their continued work.
So join them this afternoon from 1 to 4pm. Meet at the info table near Beach Drive at Cattle Point. Bring tools (loopers, pruners, etc.), wear appropriate clothing including gloves, and most importantly, friends and family.
