We have two exciting events for Earth Day 2012 – hope to see you there!
Glen Echo Ravine Invasive Removal and Clean-up
April 14, 2012 – 9 am to 3 pm
Come out and join us as we continue our efforts to reclaim our community’s green space. We will be removing small invasive vegetation (creeping euonymus, day lilies and the like) and collecting trash and hard construction debris from the north slope of the glen echo ravine (a.k.a., the Walker Tract). We have made great progress towards restoration; come help us achieve it!
You can register online, email or phone (614-315-4099) Jason Advani. If you have questions, he can answer them as well.
Glen Echo Ravine Tree Planting
April 21, 2012 – 9 am to 1 pm
Let’s plant trees in the open spaces! With all of the invasive vegetation removed, we have an opportunity to reforest our green space with native trees. Every tree planted goes a long way towards bettering our community.
You can register online, email or phone (614-261-0092) Peter Kovarik. If you have questions, he can answer them as well.
Where is this place?
The Walker Tract is located on the north slope of the Glen Echo Ravine south of Olentangy St. between Indianola Ave and Calumet St. The easiest parking is along Olentangy St. or Indianola Ave. There is a stairway on the Northeast side of the Indianola Ave. bridge that leads down into the ravine. At the bottom of the stairs, head west (to your right), go under the bridge and follow the trail west through the grassland slope. We will be working in the forested area which is to the west. Just follow the trail.
What do I need to bring?
Please bring gloves and shovels if you have them. There may be some poison ivy, so please dress appropriately (tall socks, pants, long sleeve shirt and a hat). We’ll be working from 9am to 3pm, but feel free to show up as your schedule permits.
Until next time!
