Greenways Land Trust leads the bashing of invasive species

Though there weren’t many yellow flowers blooming along the Myrt Thompson Trail Saturday morning, the volunteers who came out for the annual Broom Bash found plenty of invasive species to uproot.

Hosted every year by Greenways Land Trust, the volunteers have made a significant dent in the broom growing along the path. Once the area is cleared they come back in and plant new trees as well.
