On April 18th, a group of students from Whitfield School joined us at La Barque Creek’s fittingly named Young Conservation Area to remove locust trees, which have thorns 3-10 cm long growing from the branches. The work in La Barque Creek isn’t finished, though! In place of the locust trees, the area will be replanted with desirable native trees this fall or in spring 2016.
