Fountain Park restoration begins April 24

On April 24, from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., join Butler University’s Center for Urban Ecology staff, Butler students and alumni, as well as Rocky Ripple residents as everyone works together to restore and beautify Fountain Park, located on the corner of 53rd and Patterson Streets. The first priority is to remove the invasive honeysuckle.

Work includes pulling smaller invasive shrubs such as bush honeysuckle. Large honeysuckle will be cut and chipped on site to mulch a trail. Volunteers will flag the cut stumps. Volunteers should dress appropriately and bring work gloves, shovels, loppers, and any other appropriate tools.  Provided will be trash bags, some tools, water, and a grab and go lunch.
