Garlic mustard 2021

For the seventh year in a row, the Friends of Broad Ripple Park removed invasive garlic mustard from the 10 Acre Woods. With some spot supervision by Wiley the dog, 15 humans spent 72.5 hours filling 101 trash bags during multiple work sessions. Those 15 humans included nine members of the Broad Ripple Kiwanis Club. Nice work, all!

Below, you can enjoy a short video and a photo album.

Pollinator gardens 2020

The pollinator gardens along the sidewalks near the pool are looking great! A wide variety of native plants are healthy and growing, and the buzzing pollinators prove it. Not only that, but monarch butterfly caterpillars are munching away on the common milkweed as they prepare to go into their chrysalis stage to be followed by their butterfly stage. Nature at work. This is a project paid for and sustained by Friends of Broad Ripple Park volunteers led by Master Gardener Mary Durkin. Enjoy the photo album!
