Borrego Sun - Since 1949

A Thanks to Volunteers

Dear Editor,

I would like to thank the many volunteers who turned out this season to help remove Volutaria and Sahara mustard from our community. Forty two people donated 565 hours removing weeds on nonpark lands during our Wednesday Weed Walks, Saturday weed parties, and at other times. People also pulled weeds in the Park on the Thursday Work Days. In addition, I would like to thank other volunteers and staff who helped behind the scenes including folks at the Park, ABF, the Borrego Sun, Coldwell Banker Realty, Borrego Valley Realty and ABDNHA.

I am grateful to be a part of a community that cares deeply about its beautiful desert environment. Not only did we remove millions of weeds, we had a good time and made new friends.

Thank you one and all!
