Goat Hill Activity Report

for 19th June 2002

In attendance: Kathy King, Mike Bertram, Ruth Galantino, Kay Davies

Accomplishments: Cut off all Canada Thistles at ground level. Flower heads taken away for disposal.

Issues: other thistles looked either like Bull or Field. The concensus was that they were Field as we could not see the wings on the stems, which are characteristic of Bull. We need to get better at thistle identification.

Further actions: need to herbicide the Canada Thistle. The Locustsproutings also need to be tackled through chemical means.
