Having just spent almost 2 house listening to CA mow, trim and blow the open space behind my house the thought occurred to me that like the State Highway Administration and BG&E maybe the Columbia Association might consider turning some of our open spaces into meadows that might be useful for environmental and wildlife diversity.
This is how BG&E changed their mowing area under power lines into a wildlife habitat. I watch all types of wildlife in this area near Lake Elkhorn.
State highway administrations have been planting wild flowers in medians that are hard areas to mow.
I have always thought that the area around Jackson Pond would make a nice area for wild life and need less mowing.
This area around Lake Elkhorn would be a nice meadow with wild flowers.
