Fight­ing weeds

The Enterprise - - Front Page -

Pres Kee­ton uses a bush ax to hack away at a bram­ble of in­va­sive vines at Myr­tle Point Park in Cal­i­for­nia on Sun­day morn­ing. Kee­ton is a vol­un­teer with the Patux­ent Tide­wa­ter Land Trust’s “weed war­riors,” who visit the park once a month, usu­ally in the win­ter months, to clear away in­va­sive species that threaten the for­est. Frank Allen, pres­i­dent of PTLT, es­ti­mates the vol­un­teers have cleared about four acres since the pro­gram started.
