|A huge swath of blackberry bushes was bulldozed on June 17. The bush line used to extend to the nature signposts seen in the above photos. The blackberry bushes were the home of many species of animals including|
the Willow Flycatcher, a bird on the Endangered Species List.
Last week, the parks maintenance staff butchered a mature growth of blackberry bushes and fruit trees in the park that have been popular spots to gather seasonal fruit for over forty years.
The problem is there is no consistent care plan policy. It was supposed to be treated as a nature preserve, not like a construction site.
