The Invasive species are Garlic mustards, Bradford pear trees, and Bush Honeysuccle. We learned about the threat facing pollinators and how invasive species are changing the environment in bad ways at school and through our Helping Ninjas group and we learned that Founders Park is in need of help. It used to be a sand and gravel pit. We will be replacing invasive species by planting native plants and pollinator plants. We will be doing this for three ares a 330 sq. ft area, 500 sq. ft area, and a 3900 sq. ft area.”
