Weed CLEANUP, that is. Anything else is illegal.

The Corps has agreed to provide loppers and oversight (they have rules, you know) and we provide the sweat. Our goal is to remove the head-high brush and most of the grassier weeds lining the shore between the two jetties where the kids play. The problem is the snakes -- too many of which have rattles -- attracted by the brush. They have been especially numerous and active this year.

I've asked the Corps to bring weedwhackers, but no guarantees on that. If you have a heavy-duty one, feel free to bring it (and your favorite lopper if you like).

Also useful would be gloves, wheelbarrows, eye protection, long sleeves and pants unless you LIKE getting scratched up, goats, sneakers you don't mind getting wet, and your smallest wind toys. This shouldn't take long IF some weedwhackers show up; if not we'll just get less clearing done. (If the water level is back up to normal, we'll have even less to do.)
