Katrina Blair of Bee Happy Lands
On May 12, 2023, Katrina Blair of Bee Happy Lands, an organic stewardship company based in Durango, visited Carbondale to train town staff on her methods. Katrina was contacted following public discontent over a decision to spray sections of the Nature Park, also a popular dog park, with chemical herbicides as a treatment for Canada thistle and yellow toadflax. The Sopris Sun recorded her demonstration as a public archive. For more on invasion biology, listen to episodes #57 and #59 of The Ground Shots Podcast.
