CLRSS Goes Broom Busting on Bald Mountain
Thanks to CLRSS members and friends: Jean Atkinson, Mike & Carroll Patrick, Nancy Nelles, Karen Deck, David DePape & Bee Greenwayand other community members for a successful day of Broom Busting on Bald Mountain on May 7th.
It was a successful day… whereas before, it was necessary to shove the broom aside to walk, the trails are much more passible now; the sensitive areas in the wetlands are cleared so new native plantings have a chance; and we filled 2.5 dumpsters with broom! For pictures click here.
