June 28, 2013: Erv's Hayden Park News #5

Canoe tug-o'-war at Pack the Park, 6/23/13 (Kevin Kane)

Hayden Park News 5

The Pack the Park event last week raised $240 for the Friends of AHHP. Thanks to Jax Outdoors and all of the other sponsors and workers who helped make this even a success.

Also, a big thank you to the Musk Thistle Corps. Al and Ida Johnson worked several hours a day for a week. Others who helped on multiple days were Fritz and Susan Franzen, Wolf Oesterreich, and Jon Hunstock. I hope I didn't miss anyone, if so, please let me know. The large patch of thistles has been pretty well eliminated along the north shore of the west bay of the south lake. But, guess what? There are still thistles out there. Jon Hunstock worked and hour and a half this morning around the inuksut sculpture and he says there is still a large patch just to the south of the inuksut.

If you are able, please come to the park on Saturday morning and meet in the main parking lot at the shelter on the north side. As usual, wear long sleeve shirts and long pants, heavy gloves and hard soled shoes. Bring a sharp trenching shovel. I will bring plastic bags and a couple of buckets to collect flowering heads.
