Worked in my little hidden paradise on the north end between the creek and the power lines. I freed one large alder and a few smaller trees from the smothering blackberries and clematis, which seem to find a way to reach up and grab onto low-hanging branches. The whole time I was working I could hear, and occasionally see school kids on some sort of nature field trip along the other side of the creek (“Oh, look! A crayfish!). It’s nice knowing potential future park stewards are learning about nature.
