Betty Ann Kelly, environmental specialist for the Union County Department of Parks & Community Renewal, supervised the group and answered questions about the plentiful flora around the lake. The group worked hard despite the midday heat to remove invasive plants (mugwort, mile-a-minute, bindweed and Canada thistle) and litter from the shoreline restoration project and to repair fencing.
Kelly thanked the group for their participation in Union County’s Adopt-A-Park Program, stating, “Union County relies heavily on groups like Phillips 66 (Bayway) to help us keep our parks and park projects looking great. We hope to continue our partnership with the group on other projects.”
