CommentsThis year it looks like there are less Butomus on the west side of the path and more on the east side. I did not walk completely around all three ponds because on the sides i did not walk there was thick cattails, grasses and willows that made walking difficult. I only walked on the relatively open, mud-flat type areas which is where I saw the Butomus. Property Owners ID: 11; EDDMapS report
