Expect to see crews in the park using motorized equipment to cut and remove invasive plants between May 4th and May 26th. This and other site restoration work will result in temporary trail closures (signs will be in place when trails are closed). Please use caution throughout the park as crews will be moving between multiple work areas.
This is part of the Errol Heights Park Site Restoration work to control invasive plants. The goal of the site restoration work is to control invasive plants and restore valuable habitat areas by planting more native trees and shrubs.
