Honeysuckle Cut 'n Rub Weekly Walking Group

Tuesday mornings, February 26 - March 26, 2019; 9-10:30 a.m.

Girl Removing HoneysucklePlease join us for this weekly walking group! We'll start by rubbing leaves off re-sprouting honeysuckle and finish with a trail or park walk. A great way to help the environment, network, and get your morning exercise all in one fell swoop!  

The "Cut and Strip" method of eradicating Bush honeysuckle is an experimental mechanical method that involves cutting the plant at 3 feet high, then stripping any regrowth off the remaining stem on a weekly basis in the early spring.    

Our initial focus will be Lorraine Davis Park, site of the new Great Rivers Greenway Deer Creek walking/biking trail. This is also where City of Webster cut down bush honeysuckle in Fall 2018; no chemicals were applied. Our job will be to make sure no honeysuckle that has been cut will have a chance to regrow.

Things to bring:

  • waiver form
  • dress in layers
  • water bottle
  • sturdy walking shoes
