Dixon St Greenway Native Planting Project
Sat, Oct 7, 2:00 PM - 3:30 PM
Dixon Street Greenway, Off Milwaukee St E of Dixon St

The City of Madison and neighbors of the Dixon St Greenway will be kicking off an exciting project to restore native vegetation to the Greenway and eliminate some of the invasive vegetation that currently grows there.

This coming Saturday afternoon we plan to initiate the the first phase of the plan, which involves covering two areas that were recently thick in thistles with heavy-duty landscape ground cover for a number of months in order to kill the roots of the thistles. Using this method we can get rid of invasives without the use of herbicides. When our area is free of invasives, we will seed it with an appropriate prairie seed mix.
