2007 Restoration Project in Lakeridge Park

Native Plant Steward Project Team

Bryan Baker, Bill Brookreson, and Donna Mikula

Site

The project site consists of about 2.5 acres of steep forested hillside. The site is bordered to east by the park’s main trail, to the west by a private residential development, to the north by a poorly defined social trail, and to the south by the western tributary of Taylor Creek. The current overstory canopy is dominated by deciduous Big Leaf Maple and Red Alder. A dense thicket of non-native Himalayan Blackberry borders Taylor Creek; English Ivy and Herb Robert are densely distributed among both native shrubs and a number of non-native trees.
