In 2008, Manette Neighborhood Coalition volunteers gathered together to improve the local treasure we call the “The Hill Climb.” While graced with wonderful views and a mix of introduced and local plants, it was at risk due to noxious weeds and neglect. Volunteers committed over 500 hours for the Hill Climb improvements. Thousands of pounds of English Ivy and Himalayan Black Berry were removed. A cedar bench was added, as well as composting bins and landscape blocks to mitigate hill erosion and define a domestic planting area. Over 70 drought tolerant native plants were planted by volunteers to replace the ivy and blackberries.
