Baby’s Breath: Scourge of America

In E Beach, Environment, Open Season, Wildlife on May 18, 2017 at 10:49 am

Baby’s breath: Nice in a wedding bouquet or a prom corsage (maybe), but not so nice when it takes over your whole beach, pushing out native plants that naturally grow almost nowhere else besides our unique shoreline.

You can help work to remove these shrubby masses from our beach by joining forces with the Invasive Species Network on volunteer bee days this summer. Enjoy the beach, work your hockey muscles, and meet cool people. Wear long pants and gloves, because there’s natural poison ivy out there, too. And we like that. —Emily Votruba

Spring Cleanup May 6

In Community Alert on April 13, 2017 at 11:04 am

It’s spring cleanup time in the Village! New this year: CURBSIDE scrap metal and *appliance* pickup, as well as car batteries and marine batteries. If you have some of these items ready to go, kick ’em to the curb Saturday, May 6, before 9 am. As for the rest of your junk, take it down to the Village garage between 9 and 2. If you aren’t physically able to haul your stuff away, Sue Oseland will be driving a truck around on that day. Also, the Village needs some help down at HQ coordinating dropoffs, etc., so if you’d like to lend a hand, call the office at 231-352-7201. Village residents only, $25 per pickup load.
