To the editor:
As I finish my internship with the City and return to college this weekend, I would like to extend a thank you to both Tom Schmitz and Ellen Vancura for making all my work on the bike trail, and other locations around town, possible. Thanks as well to all who stopped while I was either chainsawing or flagging trees on the bike trail and talked to me about buckthorn. I will continue to come back on breaks and work on removing more, but in the meantime I encourage you all to contact Ellen and do what you can to help remove this invasive pest from our city.
Through the hard work of the community, maybe one day we can finally eradicate buckthorn from our parks and trails.
