Twenty strong and tough neighbors, both big and small, joined battle against the ivy in Marshall Park on Saturday 5 Oct, 2013. They were part of the city-wide NO IVY DAY. They tackled ivy growing around and up the tall trees in the park. It is important to prevent the ivy from taking hold up in the canopy, where it will go to seed and spread more ivy throughout the forest. These tireless workers pulled ivy from 20 trees -- an estimated 2,150 square feet of ivy. They certainly made a dent in the ivy in our park. We heard later that Marshall Park was one of the best turnouts in the city on No Ivy Day. Well done to all who participated.
