Hey all Friends of Tideman Johnson,
It’s October! That means it’s time for our annual foray into the wetland. Right now the Tideman Johnson wetland is as small and dry as its ever going to be, so what better time to get in there for a little invasive weed removal? We’ll be going after the usual suspects: ivy, blackberry, nightshade, and bindweed. There is a spectrum of wet to dry terrain, so you’ll be able to choose your preferred level of muckieness.
And did you know that stinging nettles are natives? Yes, they are a common member of our wetland plant communities, and that includes Tideman Johnson. Here’s a good picture http://www.pnwflowers.com/flower/urtica-dioica. So do yourself a favor and bring a long-sleeved shirt.
It’ll be great!
Saturday October 4th, 9am – noon
Meet up at the boardwalk
Tools and refreshments provided
Bring boots if you have them, and wear a long sleeved shirt.
We hope to see you out there!
Friends of Tideman Johnson
