the mowers came to Arcadia Trail park this week

Feeling sad and very frustrated. They brought big mowers into the park and mowed down all the milkweed and other wildflowers. They took down the cattails that were filtering water before it went into the creek. We were just getting beautiful fields of wildflowers, increasing numbers and varieties of butterflies and other insects. There is no need for a lot of this mowing. Understand where there are ball fields and activity areas, this is necessary. But we have vast fields where most people never wander, except for those of us who actually really enjoy nature, that should be left until the plants have gone to seed. Unfortunately I guess there are people who want a "manicured" park...
