Wildlife Habitat Restoration

Wildlife Habitat Restoration helps the City of Shawnee manage invasive/noxious weeds in our city parks.  For this project we are specifically targeting honeysuckle in Garrett Park.   Bush Honeysuckle are not native to America.  Here they have no natural controls, they leaf out early, grow fast, spread fast and form dense thickets that crowd out native forest plants challenging the natural plant and animal habitat of our woods.  We are seeking groups, families, and individuals for the various roles this project involves. 

JOBS for each group:  1-2 people will be cutting (with loppers or hand saws) the honeysuckle. 1-2 people (18 and older) will be applying chemical to the cut honeysuckle stump.  1-2 people will be hauling the cut honeysuckle out and into a pile and 1-2 people will pick up any trash exposed by the clearing.

PLEASE NOTE:  Those age 12-18 who have a parents’ consent can use the loppers otherwise their jobs would be hauling weeds out or collecting any trash.  RAINOUT Date:April 21st, same time, same place.  Notice of cancellation due to weather will go out through Sign Up Genius. 

Date: 04/14/2018 (Sat.)

Time: 9:00am - 12:00pm CDT

Location: Garrett Park: West 47th St. (west of Monticello Rd.) Shawnee, KS 66226
