In October there were three events in Marlborough Park to get residents involved in the park planning process:
On October 1st residents came together for hiking with iNaturalist. At this event, we used the free iNaturalist phone app to identify plant species and learn about natural resources in the park.
On October 8th and December 17, residents and park ambassadors worked together to cut back invasive honeysuckle in the park.
On October 20th the Plan team hosted a community workshop to work through plans and priorities for Marlborough Park. Check out the notes from that community conversation below:
