Scotch Broom Challenge Success!

Volunteers removing Scotch Broom

Thank you to the John Woolman School students and all the wonderful volunteers who participated  in our first Scotch Broom Challenge in connection with the Bear Yuba Land Trust on March 3. By the end of the day, many 5-foot high piles of Scotch Broom were removed from the Burton Homestead trails.  Many thanks to the Bear Yuba Land Trust for leading this important effort.

Although admired for its yellow blossoms, the Scotch broom shrub is a fierce invasive species quickly out-competing our precious native plants.

BYLT giving the safety talk

Register today to help remove this invasive plant with Jessica Roberts, SYRCL’s Watershed Coordinator, for the next Scotch Broom Challenge day on April 14th at Hirschman’s Pond.
