This week went by fairly quickly. Monday and Tuesday consisted mostly of watering natives and killing invasive plant species. On Wednesday we got some variety. We learned that a new parking lot would be built in the immediate future and that we had to salvage as many plants as possible before construction. So we spent the day digging in the earth for penstemon, grasses, and junipers. Thursday morning consisted of gathering seed from a native plant called 'needle and thread grass'. The greenhouse/nursery staff will now grow the seed for upcoming revegetation projects. In the afternoon we all prepped for our upcoming cultural project. It was an easy, highly successful week.
