In 2017, the Green Team informally adopted the Stormwater Ponds and began removing Scotch Broom. After being successful with that, the Broom Busters morphed into being the Berry Blasters. A much less satisfactory endeavor but a necessary one. The goal went from eradication to control. Gary Proctor and Cleve organized the latest work party.

Photos: Cleve Pinnix is not all wet despite claims! The water was only knee deep when Cleve waded across the narrow channel between the mainland and the island, in what he has dubbed “Lake Vogel”, to attack the last bastion of Scotch Broom. Wayne, John and Dave helped ferry the plants across.
