In other greenways news, please do your part to remove garlic mustard from the greenways. Please contact Hayden McCann at firstname.lastname@example.org for lessons on how to identify garlic mustard and tips for removal.
Reminder! The greenways are larger than you may think. Please do not place any structures (gardens, play structures), yard waste or brush in the greenways without approval from the greenways committee.
