Work Party by University Prep 7th-Graders

7th-grade students from the University Prep Middle School have adopted 3 distinct “Puma Power Zones” of Licorice Fern Natural Area and are making a big difference already. So far they have had one work party and two more are planned for this winter. Early in October, 26 students and three teachers joined “Friends of Licorice Fern Natural Area” volunteers and two hard-working Parks employees for a Community Services work party.  Together they removed invasive species such as blackberry, holly and english ivy, built on-site compost towers for debris, added wood chips to maintenance trails, and cleared a street-side drainage ditch. U-Prep’s next steps will be to plant and nurture some native trees in the Puma Power Zones under the direction of Friends volunteers. If you’re interested in participating please send us an email at LFNAFriends@gmail.com
