Western’s Renaturalization Project

Western is conducting a naturalization project on the Precious Blood Meadow and the lands bordering Springett Lot. They are targeting buckthorn (an invasive, non-native tree) which spreads aggressively, and other woody invasive plants, cutting and removing dead trees including the trees on the line between Brescia and the back of Huron, then doing restoration with native plants.
