I expected this activity to be very difficult, but watching everyone working together for the ecological systems at the park was such a motivational boost! All the staff were also really excited that we really cared about what we were doing and it just made it that much easier to be awake before noon on a weekend.
I wasn't looking forward to being up before noon on the weekend, but I'm so glad I went. Everyone there was so nice and it felt good to be out in nature. I learned how to use a saw and it was neat learning a bit more about our local ecosystem and help protect it
The cleanup of invasive species was hard work but overall a wonderful and fun experience.
I learned a lot about the invasive species the Tree of Heaven and the Siberian Elm. The experience was interesting and entertaining as we were able to cut down these invading species, and improve the environment of the park.
I had such a great time at this event. It was a lot of fun to learn something new while giving back to the community and helping to clean-up near the Truckee River.
