Have you walked up to the Point lately? Come and see. It looks like Preserve staff and volunteers have removed most of the buckthorn, old growth and re-sprouts. This was an amazing effort in a short time. The views are absolutely gorgeous now, all the way to the Point. When standing at the highest cone mound just before the Narrows, you can now see all the way to the lake beaches beyond the pond marsh and to Frautschi Point. When walking or jogging past the water pump, you know you are on a promontory - water on both sides of the cliffs. The next step will be to maintain control of invasive shrubs and to plant native shrubs that provide habitat for the many birds on Picnic Point. Photos G. Kutzbach - click to enlarge.
