EDSET continues

Posted on by Surprise Highway

Eight Student interns from Albany High School from the Advanced Placement Program entitled Education in Design, Science, and Environmental technology (EDSET) continue their studies in the garden. This week the students worked on eradicating invasive species of plants such as Algerian Ivy, Himalayan blackberry and European grasses from the creek restoration area. This will help aid in the the surveying process that is being conducted by graduate students from the UC Berkeley Rivers & Streams class. By zip-line we sent yards of mulch, donated by a local tree company, over to the other side of the creek. The mulch will help to slow the return of the invasive species.
