Elmhurst Park District: Great Western Prairie Work Day

August 28 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

Keith Olson, David Terrill and I met and discussed the mounting army of invasive Cut leaf Teasel plants (Dipsacus laciniatus) that are assembling just to the west of Salt Creek and east of Rt 83.  We are calling a special work day for this Saturday, August 28 from 9:00 until noon to concentrate on this plant.  It is currently flowering and we want to catch it before it drops seed.  Simple task, cutting the seed heads with hand clippers and collecting in bags for removal.  Unfortunately we don’t have enough hand clippers for all, so please bring a pair if you have them and wear long sleeves.  For this project, we will meet at the far west end of the EGWP at Rex Ave and the Illinois Prairie Path at 9:00 AM.
