Robinson Park Invasive Species


The purpose of this grant is for the City of Sandstone to let a contract to seek professional help to eradicate the existing small patches of invasive Buckthorn, and Garlic Mustard in Robinson Park, to develop a management plan for the park vegetation and install additional native plantings. The areas of invasion have been identified on a map by the DNR regional ecologist for the area and attached to the photo portion of this application. The first step is a three year eradication plan. Then the City will then work with the contractor and volunteers to implement the restoration, control, and management plan developed as part of this process. The City will be able to restart planting the appropriate native species using community support and advice from public agencies
