Invasive Species Removal (Japanese Knotweed) - Sawmill Creek
Saturday, August 13, 2022
9:00am - 12:00pm
City Stream Watch will be conducting an invasive species removal along Sawmill Creek behind Towngate Shopping Plaza. City Stream Watch has been tackling this spot for several years now and we have been starting to see improvement. Japanese knotweed is extremely pervasive, and this removal will involve using shovels to dig out the rhizomes. We will meet at Towngate Shopping Plaza, behind the produce depot for 9:00AM. 

Meeting location: Towngate Shopping Plaza 
What to wear: Dress for the weather! Wear waterproof boots, long socks (if you want to borrow chest waders), long pants, and a hat
What to bring: Feel free to bring your own gloves if you have a favorite but we will provide them; please bring your own water bottle
What we will provide: We will have drinking water to replenish empty bottles, some snacks, chest waders (for those who reserve them send me your shoe size with your RSVP), garbage bags, and gloves

To participate in any of our City Stream Watch events or Stream Monitoring please read in advance the participant guide

If you are interested in participating, please RSVP

Location Towngate Shopping Plaza (Behind Produce Depot)
