Summer's End - Still Active Time Outdoors

I'm working on the next issue of the newsletter.  It's hard to believe school has started up again and the temps are definitely cooler.  A few giant zucchini were hiding out in the garden under the big leaves and those are in and will be part of dinners in September.

I like pulling together information for the newsletter.  It's a mix of what people are up to, what goes on, and sometimes I put a little bit of the past into the newsletter.  This far east part of Duluth is a nice place to live and to get out and enjoy the outdoors.  Yes, it's also the way people head to the North Shore, a part of Grandma's Marathon, the inline marathon (I forgot about that this morning and was delayed heading to Superior to be Rex the dog Scoop the Poop at the Cause for the Paws fundraiser event), and the lakewalk and local trails serve for people to bike and hike.

This summer I noticed Lakeshore was having a special bike ride opportunity for seniors.  A peddling person carried two seniors up 40th Ave E and on to the Lakewalk.  Pretty nice!  I wanted to give it a try!

I hope you'll help to keep Lakeside clean and free of litter and pick up pet waste.  Here are upcoming opportunities to help remove an invasive species: 

Help remove knotweed (false bamboo).  It's growing along the Lakewalk.

* Sept. 16, 5-6:30 p.m., meet at  40th Avenue East and the Lakewalk.
* Sept. 23, 5-6:30 p.m., meet at  58th Avenue East and the Lakewalk.

Stay tuned for the Oct/Nov Look at Lakeside for a LAL (Look at Lakeside) reader opportunity to help at the Second Harvest Food bank.
