Volunteers of America Kick A** on the Broom Thicket, Thursday, January 26, 2012.

The title says it all.

Note: the WordPress/Flickr interface has been stupid lately (come on, guys!) so you may need to cut-and-paste to see this slideshow. But it is worth it, if you want to see the ancient thicket the Volunteers of America are clearing and get a sense of what the restoration of this pond slope really entails. Remember: each mature French broom plant produces up to 10,000 seeds/year, and crown-sprouts from the cut base. E.g., this restoration isn’t going to happen overnight. But it’s going to happen.
