Molly Langstraat's curator insight, September 23, 2013 5:35 PM

I think it is good that the new manager is taking care of the excessive native vegetation. It is good to train new divers because it a safe place to start with diving training. I think that some of the excess vegetation should be left where it is. Extra vegetation isn't necessarily a bad thing, hence why it should be left alone. I do see where it could cause potential problems so it may also be a good thing to remove it.

Marlee Morton's comment, October 3, 2013 2:51 PM
I thought this article was pretty cool I never knew that you needed to clear some vegetation out. I don't know if clearing all of it out is a good idea, because it is native to the area. I can see going in and taking some of it out, but I'm sure lots of animals, fish, and organisms rely on the vegetation.
