Pull, Pile, Stomp! at Circle Creek
10 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Saturday, July 8

Pull, pile, and stomp an invasive riparian plant at Circle Creek Conservation Center! Policeman’s helmet (Impatiens glandulifera) is an escaped ornamental plant that will take over areas along riverbanks, pushing out native vegetation. We need your help removing it from the banks of the Necanicum River at Circle Creek, our habitat reserve just south of Seaside.

It’s an easy one to pull; we don’t typically even need tools, as it comes up easy by hand. Then we’ll pile up the plants and stomp on them to destroy the cells and leave them in the sun to dessicate. It’s fun for the whole family, so bring the kids to pull, pile, and stomp!

MEETING SITE: We’ll meet in the parking lot of the Circle Creek Conservation Center. Map here.

BRING: Sturdy boots and clothing, snacks and water for yourself. NCLC will provide tools and gloves, but feel free to bring your own. Loppers and/or hand clippers could be handy for getting to any policeman’s helmet that could be behind/around blackberry.

There is no potable water at the site, and no toilets. Dogs are not allowed on any NCLC properties.
