This week the team finished their first work site by clearing the remaining trees and brush from the area. Tuesday and Wednesday the team helped Park Service employees by preparing the aquatic grass-like species Scirpus validus and Scirpus acutus for planting, first freeing up and cutting all the tangled root systems then placing the individual plants into buckets. The team brought the plants to a new site called Old Hotel Road and spent the next day and a half planting 100s of plugs using hand trowels and dibbles to dig the holes. On Wednesday the team finished planting and spent the last hour of the work day removing woody plants from their new work site, the Old Hotel Site. Thursday the team continued clearing brush with loppers and chainsaws, spraying every stump with herbicide as they went.
