PHHS Red Cross Club Conquers Invasives Again

This Saturday, January 16, Piedmont Hills High School Red Cross Club returned to the Native Garden on a visit scheduled by Albert Duong. The team of seven volunteers, along with Xin and Arvind, mulched large beds overgrown with invasive annual grasses. Take a look.

Now these newly mulched beds will remain free of invasive grasses for up to 5 years — a worthwhile investment in controlling invasives.

The skies were overcast, but it was dry until noon when it drizzled just a bit. It was not cold — a great day to be outdoors. The garden was full of bird chatter.
