We meet Chris Evans, coordinator of the River to River Cooperative Weed Management Area, who shares why boot brushes are important to our region's forests and nature preserves. Evans explains that cleaning your shoes before entering and after leaving a trail keeps the seeds of invasive plants from spreading to other areas. Next time you're visiting one of our region's beautiful natural areas, you can help to prevent the spread of invasive plants by simply stopping by a boot brush station on the hiking trail and cleaning off the bottom of your shoes.
