Spring Cleanup — Tentative Date April 16
Spring is really on the way. Some snowdrops and winter aconites were showing before the latest fall of snow. What this means is that it’s time to set a date for the neighborhood Spring Cleanup, when FHIA encourages residents to volunteer to pick up the trash that has accumulated by the sides of our streets over the winter or participate in other activities to keep the neighborhood looking attractive. Watch for details from firstname.lastname@example.org.
Meanwhile, you may want to keep an eye out for Garlic Mustard or Hairy Bittercress. These aggressively invasive plants overwinter without dying back and you may notice them soon. Below are some useful documents FHIA has circulated in the past about dealing with them.
