Thanks

Herbicides at Carpenters Woods

I live across the street from Carpenter's Woods, along the Thumb.

I find it curious that, to contain invasive plants at Carpenter's Woods, an herbicide is sprayed whose active ingredient, triclopyr acid, offers "mild toxicity to birds" and which kills non-invasive plants, while killing and/or toxifying the berries that surround the Thumb, that birds eat.

Last summer three little signs were posted at the Thumb which were not sufficient to warn my landlady, her dog, and myself that walking the sidewalk might cause irritation to skin or eyes. Both of which happened.

Perhaps others were affected, too.

As an ecologist who has taught at two universities, I am not yet convinced that destroying invasives at the perimeter of this park is of greater benefit to biodiversity here than the damage that may be caused to birds, berries, and people here.

    A ZERO! Do not send your kids here! They are adamant about discipline (detentions, etc) but getting them to help a struggling child is like pulling teeth, teachers leave right after dismissal like clock punchers. My child was promised bus service and has since missed many days due to driver call outs . Now we are told there is NO bus to pick her up or drop her off. This is her last year thankfully, if it wasn t so late in the year, I would have transferred her ANYWHERE BUT HERE!!!

    Dog treats on cutting board, tobacco water pipe on self close Philly eateries
    What were dog treats doing on a restaurant cutting board? In this round of Clean Plates, a tobacco water pipe with residue in it, "potentially hazardous pudding pastries" and, of course, dead mice kept Philadelphia food inspectors busy as they temporarily closed 39 facilities between April 15 and April 30 for various violations.
