SUBMITTED PHOTO - Residents of the Hallinan neighborhood, including 13 children, and three city employees spent two hours Feb. 21 planting 520 native species plants in Hallinan Woods. After 12 years of city and volunteer efforts to rid Hallinan Woods of invasive species, this event marked the first time plants had been introduced into the woods.  If you wander off the trail, please take care to notice the new plantings, says Hallinan Neighborhood Association member Barbara Fisher. They are small and vulnerable right now. Remember to keep dogs on leash. Hallinan Woods is not a dog park. Fisher said the neighborhood association plans to continue restoration efforts in the future and is considering forming a Friends of Hallinan Woods group. Learn more about friends groups on the City of Lake Oswegos website, ci.oswego.or.us. Contact Fisher at lanefisher@comcast.net if interesting in being a member.
