Northeast Creek Streamwatch partners with the Parkwood Homeowners Association and members of the American Bamboo Society to manage the bamboo groves in the common land of the Parkwood community by using volunteers. Management contains the bamboo to attractive groves in suburban residential setting by harvesting the bamboo for shoots, stakes, and building material for community projects.
Michael and Derek are planning a walk through the bamboo grove near Euclid Avenue in Parkwood this Sunday, Jan 18 at 3 p.m. Join us as Michael begins to identify and catalog flora and fauna of the 1.5 acre grove.
NECSW is actively participating in the volunteer effort to manage the Parkwood bamboo grove and clean up the Euclid stream. Our vision is to manage the bamboo grove to create a productive and esthetically pleasing public space. A healthy grove is uniquely beautiful, is a good habitat for birds, reduces rainwater runoff from surrounding land, and offers a pleasant parkland for walking and contemplation. Three of our members joined six other volunteers for several work sessions this past week.
