Conservation Efforts at Camp Denison

Erosion Control Projects approved by CPC to control erosion at the vehicle bridge to the Lodge, around the Main Lodge and Manager's apartment, and along the stairs from Lodge grounds to the Concrete Pier at Baldpate waters edge. All of the above projects will be instituted during 2011.

Invasive Species Removal Purple Loosestrife has been removed from boat-launching beach and Beaver Hut observation area. Oriental Bittersweet and Poison Ivy has been removed from parts of Cabin Area and Historic Sites areas. Wood chips from brush, fallen trees ,etc. have been spread on many walking trails to improve safety of walking surface and also speed return of wood to soil. Larger wood pieces are removed from use areas and placed in "pit" areas to promote more rapid rotting.
