Point of Interest Details

As you walk the path on this side of the lake, look for signs of ecological restoration. In the past several decades, staff and volunteers have worked hard to remove non-native, invasive plants, including buckthorn, privet, bush honeysuckle and oriental bittersweet that have “crowded out” many native plant species. The young trees surrounded by metal were planted by volunteer student groups in efforts to re-establish native tree species. The fences protect these young trees from deer; fences around larger trees protect them from beavers.
