“More than  80 neighbors and community volunteers met at the West Bouldin Creek Greenbelt for the 27th Annual BCNA Creek Cleaning Party yesterday morning. Together we removed over 120 bags of trash, as well as tents, clothing, carpet remnants, cardboard and small electronics. In addition, the abundance of nandina, a fast-spreading non-native bush, was reduced by at least half. Hint – there is a lot more to take out…

We finished off the morning with a delicious lunch from Lucy’s on South Congress: fried chicken, pickles, mashed potatoes, cole slaw. We had neglected to bring eating utensils, but found out that wooden coffee stirs make great chopsticks that worked just fine.…
