Seven volunteers from FedEx and one volunteer from the neighborhood met staff at Highlands Scrub Natural Area on April 20 to participate in the third Snake Plant Strike Force event of 2016. The volunteers worked for just under three hours, digging up snake plant, a.k.a. bowstring hemp (Sansevieria hyacinthoides), and bagging it for compositing offsite. This plant is an invasive species that has spread into the natural area site and has crowded out native plants in some sections. The volunteers filled 22 full-size trash bags with the invasive plant. Thanks, FedEx!
