What we'll doHelp by clearing out invasive plants like honeysuckle, knotweed, and porcelain berry.
Who can do itAnyone 16+

We’re kicking off a new project at the CGC: Treeforestation. Many of Cincinnati’s green spaces are overrun with invasive plants. As more and more ash trees come down, thinning our tree canopy, there is increasingly more room for invasive species (Japanese honeysuckle, Japanese knotweed, Porcelain Berry) to take over and exclude our native plants and animals.

The first space we’re focusing on is Walnut Woods, a 10-acre property adjacent to Walnut Hills High School. We will be restoring it in collaboration with Walnut Hills High School, Cincinnati Parks, UC, the Evanston Community and more. This will be an ongoing project, and we could use your help!

Decembers Volunteer of the Month is Josh Morgan! Josh started volunteering with the CGC in October of 2016 after a recommendation from one of his professors at UC. He started by helping out on the grounds, then started volunteering for Summer Sprouts, then Green Learning Station field trips. Now Josh really fills in wherever we need him- tabling events, habitat renewal, helping with maintenance, etc- hes our Josh of all trades! Josh loves teaching children about the need for environmental consciousness and seeing how their mentalities change about the subject as the program goes on. But Joshs favorite part of volunteering here is has been the opportunity to be a part of the vibrant and ever expanding CGC community. He loves meeting all of the interesting people who are just as passionate about building community through gardening, education and environmental stewardship. Thanks for everything, Josh! We dont know what wed do without you.
