May 31, 2012: Invasive Plants Interpretive Walk Today
The red 2-story Page dragline was the most visible symbol at Hallett's sand and gravel extraction site. 1992 photo from Ames Historical Society.
It's not hard to see where so many invasive plant species may have come from at Ada Hayden Heritage Park after understanding the history of the site and how manipulated the landscape was during mining operations. To understand more about the long history of the site we've come to know and love, see http://www.ameshistoricalsociety.org/exhibits/hallets/hallets1.htm at the Ames Historical Society site.
