The Friends of malcolmson Eco-Park extend sincere thanks to the Niagara community Foundation for awarding us a grant of $4000 for 2019 to assist with our project to remove invasive plants at the park. This grant will help us conduct a spray by a licenced specialist of invasive Buckthorn, bittersweet Vine, Manitoba Maple, Tartarian Honeysuckle and Multiflora Rose.
These invasive plants are out competing native plants and destroying habitat and food for native insects, birds and wildlife. This project was begun in Dec. 2018, and we hope to continue it for 5 years. This will allow better growing conditions for the native plants that we replace the invasives with.
