Waning November-Photo Essay

by Jonathan Mayo

As November wanes, we bask in these unseasonally warm temperatures well aware that colder days await. I'd like to share some photos from these latter days of November.

Old fashioned line clearing by N-Star

Recent controversy surrounding N-Star's use of herbicides has resulted in resumption of old style methods of brushcutting along the Cape's many power lines.

To the right we see N-Star's recent clearing of power lines that run through Nickerson State Park in Brewster.

A 2010 moratorium on herbicide spraying expired early this year, but N-Star agreed to continue it until Spring 2012.

It's critical that we keep our fragile waterways free of such toxins.
