Creating Meadow Habitat (volunteers needed)

Creating Meadow Habitat Saturday, December 3, 1 pm at the Blue Ridge Center for Environmental Stewardship.  In October over a dozen people began restoring two meadows, the most threatened habitat in the U.S., at the Blue Ridge Center for Environmental Stewardship in northwestern Loudoun County near Harpers Ferry.  To restore this habitat and the wildlife that depends on it we must first cut down all the Autumn Olive, a highly aggressive invasive alien shrub, and several other trees and shrubs which are rapidly taking over the two meadows.  After the trees and shrubs are cut down we are using them to build brush piles which wildlife can use for shelter.  While we accomplished a lot in October we didn't finish.   If you are a high school student or older and interested in helping contact Joe Coleman at joecoleman@rstarmail.com or 540-554-2542.
