I went up to Skinner’s Butte this morning and was horrified to find that they have not only removed invasive species like ivy, scotch broom , and blackberries but they have , felled trees and removed almost all ground cover on the south west slope. The most disturbing to me is that they removed the small trees and the large round shrub just to the west of the parking lot where countless migratory species past through. I don’t know if there was a public comment period for this project, but I do intend to call the city to see if they are going to do some replanting. If anyone knows about the City’s plans please let me know.
