Glacier Hills and Lizard Mound County Park Land Stewardship

Glacier Hills and Lizard Mound County Park Land Stewardship

The Washington County project involved managing NR 40 invasive plant species. The work included managing habitat to support populations of Kittentails (Besseya bullii) and other native open oak forest species at Glacier Hills by reducing the total percent cover of all invasive and undesirable plant species within seven mapped stands to less than 5% total cover by November 2015; supporting the successful savanna restoration efforts at Lizard Mound Park by reducing the percent cover of garlic mustard, poison ivy, and other herbaceous invasive plants within a 5-acre restoration site and by controlling garlic mustard and other herbaceous invasive species growing within 5 feet of mapped trails within the park; controlling invasive and undesirable woody shrub layer species in four newly established brush control areas; and performing baseline and follow-up ground layer and shrub layer monitoring.
