Pierce's Pond BBQ & Meadow Workshop:
Tamping out Invasive Bishop’s Weed

Saturday, August 14th
2-4pm at the fish ladder on Pierce’s Pond

The meadow at Pierce’s Pond Fish Ladder has exploded with the invasive Bishop’s Weed! Join us for a hands-on workshop to learn how to oust the weed without chemicals. We will also examine the process of native plant restoration at the site and talk about techniques in cultivating disturbed ground, including the dangers of bringing invasive species within ‘fill’ dirt during construction.

Taking a community centered approach to tending the landscape, this site is one of several projects that are opening fish ladders throughout the Bagaduce watershed.  Chair of the Penobscot Alewife Committee and primary instigator of fish passage restoration, Bailey Bowden will be on hand to talk about how the sites are intertwined and how he has achieved success through the collaboration with several groups.

Bring garden tools like shovels, clippers, buckets and hoes if you have them!
