WHAS works to remove invasive plants from Lake Sacajawea Islands

Carolyn is ready to tackle the ivyWHAS has been working with the City of Longview Parks Department and the Lower Columbia College Biological Society to remove invasive plants from Lake Sacajawea habitat islands that are only accessible by boat.  Our most recent workday, as mentioned here in The Daily News, succeeded in removing almost all of the scotch broom from the north island, with a single plant left in place because it contained a red-wing black bird nest.

With the help of many volunteers, we also continued our efforts to keep English ivy out of the trees and to reduce holly on the island.  Many thanks for their efforts, to citizens Lindsay Godfrey, Mary Huels, Emily Kilbourn, Patricia Wright, and Tim Wright, LCC Biological Society members Jenn Dunn and Jordan Mackey, Willapa Hills Audubon members Craig Brown, Tom Finn, John and Margaret Green, Carolyn Norred, Larry Turner, Ludger Woehrmann, and Pamela Wright.
