Loren has some good tasks that may be undertaken by individual
volunteers to help keep Quiet Water looking sharp:
- The pathway next to ditch near Recreation Complex - area to the west of the path has a lot of reed canary grass, and occasional ivy and berry that should be removed.
- The natural area between the tennis court and Hwy 101 - There is a lot of ivy climbing the trees there, particularly southern half – cut ivy at base of tree but do not try to remove ivy from tree. There are several areas where knotweed & holly could be removed.
- The area between the path and the river, in all locations, needs ivy on the ground pulled and cut at the base of trees where it is climbing the tree. Do not try to remove cut ivy from trees. Berry can be trimmed as close to the ground as possible.
- Main path along the river – remove grass and weeds in pathway surface.
- The area to west of Lori Lane (QW property portion) – remove ivy on ground, cut ivy and clematis in trees near the base of the tree but do not try to pull out of the tree, cut or remove holly, and keep berry trimmed back from curb area.
- Occasionally, there is a bit of ivy in & behind behind the concrete electrical power box enclosures along streets – remove when found.
- General cleanup of dead limbs from primarily alders throughout the LCA's. Not too heavy a work task and could be accomplished by individual volunteers.
- KP and pull ivy along the east side of Combs Cir as it approaches River Rd.
- Remove invasive plants and weeds (tansy, knotweed, scotch broom, morning glory, etc.) on the sand bar area just west of the bend in the river.
