Like most Beaconites, I greatly appreciate the work that's been done at Long Dock and the surrounding park.
But does anyone know why the area is being treated with pesticides for the remainder of October? (According to the warning signs along the walkways, it's being treated until 10/29.)
Is there really a serious pest problem there? I'd hate to see that once-wild area -- former home to red foxes, deer and other wildlife -- turn completely into a toxic suburban golf course.
