Community Weed Pull
If you're like me, the thought of pulling weeds takes you back to childhood, when you made wishes upon puffy white dandelions before exhaling a big breath of air to scatter their seeds all across your backyard (sorry Mom and Dad). However, this weekend I found out there is so much to learn about the pesky little plants that pop up through the soil year after year.
My day started off tagging along with Brian Kolokowsky and Mary Lane Poe from the Resource Stewardship division to meet up with members from the Estes Land Stewardship Association (ELSA) and community volunteers who were taking part in the annual event. Our task for the morning was to tackle the grassy area between High Drive and Moraine Ave. which is home to many native plants that are forced to share space with troublesome weeds.
