On February 2nd, 10 volunteers removed over 1,000 cattail seed heads from the Letort Spring Garden Preserve's wetland.

These invasive cattails monopolized the abandoned watercress beds prior to CPC's acquisition, and staff have since managed them to ensure that a diverse, native plant community can establish in the wetland.

These tenacious volunteers made quick work of the cattails, harvesting all the seed heads in a mere 20 minutes!
