Clearing Non-Native Blackberries and Planting Native Trees

Tyler Ocon Troop 106, Fremont

For my eagle project I got a group of people to remove a large section of black berry located at Tule Ponds. Once the black berry was removed we covered the area with tan bark to prevent further growth of the black berry. We also planted three trees. The purpose of this project was to create more habitat for animals.

For this project I had a lot of help. This help came both from my troop, church, and family. There were 16 youth from the age of 12 to 16 and 11 adults. In total there were 28 people that helped work on this project including me.  The total of hours that were spent planning and working on this project was about 80 hours.
