Thank you to all who made
our second Together Green a great success!
We met at 9:00, with a
Girl Scout troop from Owasso joining us. Vinny Robinson of Oxley
explained the problem of invasive species, and instructed us on the
procedures to follow. We were to remove wisteria that had begun to take
over a patch of woods behind the picnic shelter. The procedure was to
cut the vines near the ground and then spray the remaining root or stump
with a herbicide. The girls were outfitted with loppers, and selected
adults were armed with spray bottles of herbicide.
After about two hours of
work (and those Girl Scouts really did work!) we enjoyed a lunch of
grilled hot dogs, chips and fruit provided by the Friends of Oxley.
