Scouts BSA Troop 1191G of Francis Scott Key District, NCAC worked to clear invasive species from their local Windy Ridge Park trail with the Town of Mount Airy Naturalist. By working with the town Naturalist, Scouts started to identify invasives and how they were suffocating the native plant life. With this new knowledge, they worked to clear areas of invasives to allow native plants to thrive in their natural habitat. Scouts worked to clear invasive plants such as multiflora rose, oriental bittersweet, and Japanese stiltgrass. This allowed Scouts to appreciate a number of small native snapdragons that would normally be wiped out by invasives. The most triumphant save of the day was a mature mulberry that was being suffocated by a large oriental bittersweet. Several large piles of invasive plants are destined to be picked up this week by the town for disposal. #ScoutsBSATroop1191 #ScoutingContinues #givingbacktothecommunity
