Uprooting plants for nature – is there such a thing?

Uprooting plants for nature – is there such a thing?

 

 
A project to uproot outbreaking plants was launched last week as part of the educational-environmental cooperation between Ort Binyamina High School and Ramat Hanadiv
Last Wednesday all the 7th-grade students from Ort Binyamina High School set out with guides from Ramat Hanadiv to uproot outbreaking species from the Ramat Hanadiv Nature Park. The aim of the project is to restore the original biodiversity of the region.
Outbreaking species are plants that multiply in great numbers and outcompete other species in the same habitat. This phenomenon disturbs the natural balance and is caused by a number of reasons, including human intervention.
Mallow, known by its Arabic name ‘hubeiza’, is a very common species in Israel, and is considered to be an outbreaking species that interferes with local plant species, such as anemones and other wildflowers. In the Nature Park, it proliferates mainly in the vicinity of the Ein Tzur spring.
Mahfouz Al Khatib, a ranger in the Ramat Hanadiv Nature Park, who leads the uprooting project, noted that thanks to the uprooting that has been conducted in cooperation with ORT School in recent years, a clearly noticeable decline in the mallow population was observed this year.
Irit Lador, Head of the Education Department at Ramat Hanadiv and the ‘Partnership for Regional Sustainability’, notes that the project is part of a broad cooperation between Ramat Hanadiv and the ORT School located on its outskirts. “This cooperation gives the children a hands-on experience outside of their normal routine, and a real connection to the environment. Everyone benefits: nature, the students, who gain a sense of self-worth regarding their important contribution and of course the visitors, who can continue to enjoy the beauty of anemones and other wildflowers thanks to the uprooting activity.
