Before and After Buckthorn Removal in Phase 1 of the Discovery Point Restoration Project

Details: The District is beginning the second phase of habitat restoration at Nine Mile Creek Discovery Point. This project seeks to restore plant diversity, increase habitat value, stabilize soils, and be a demonstration site for property owners to learn how to conduct invasive species removal projects.

We invite you to come learn about the timing of invasive buckthorn removal and tree removal and expectations of what the site will look like after removal. In addition, we will discuss seeding of the restoration area and planting of trees and shrubs for screening and plant diversity.
