The team started the week by measuring tree DBH (diameter at breast height) with Park Service employees. The information collected will be used in a future restoration project at the National Lakeshore. A mid-season visit from the Native Plant Program Coordinator Mike Stefancic and a surprise visit from the Fire Monitor Program Manager Brian Doughty made this a very fun and exciting week. The team presented their Mid-season Project to Mike and their Agency Partner Dan before resuming their normal schedule of plant removal. Work this week continued at the Old Hotel site and with the help of Mike and Brian, the team was able to work in larger groups than normal. The team was sad to say goodbye to Mike and Brian but excited to start the next week of work.
