Wetlands at The Oregon Garden,
taken in early spring, 2001, when the trees and shrubs were still small enough to let us get in to the wetlands with big machinery. This is a "spider hoe", typically used to walk up streams; it has a 'soft touch' and was able to scoop out reed canary grass (invasive exotic weed) without damaging the compacted clay liner at the bottom of the upper wetland ponds.
