On a cool, cloudy Saturday morning, April 13, 2013, an enthusiastic group of adults and families gathered for the first annual mad dash to yank out invasive Honeysuckle in the woods. After an hour of pulling, the group showed little signs of stopping -- they were having too much fun! But time was up, and they had to move on to planting some new trees and wildflowers, fixing the flower boxes, and cleaning/replacing bird boxes.
Judges awarded GREAT PRIZES based on the honeysuckle piles. Gift cards generously donated by: Lulu's Coffee Cafe, Pottery by You, Einstein's Bagels, St. Elmo's Steakhouse, Harry and Izzy's, Gilbert's Flower shop, Hotcakes Emporium, Windowbox Gardener, and more!!! Every participant got a bpa-free, reusable Daub Park sport/bike water bottle too!
All ages participated, from age 5 to 70+. Several of the adults were so magnanimous as to pull honeysuckle and pile theirs onto other people's piles, to help everyone out. These generous individuals won special prizes.
Snacks included bagels donated by Einstein Bagels. A big thank you to the newest Daub Park board member, Michelle Henne, for taking charge of this event and making it happen!
