DULUTH, MN (KDAL) - The City of Duluth is inviting you to join the "Buckthorn Brigade" and help in the ongoing fight against the invasive shrub called buckthorn.  It has become common in City Parks and trails plus backyards and lawns in the area.  It was first introduced in the 1800's as a popular hedge but is now illegal to sell, import or transport in Minnesota.  Several buckthorn removal events are being held this month and volunteers are needed to help out.  On Thursday the Buckthorn Brigade meets at 5 p-m just outside the Indian Point Campground at the Western Waterfront Trail head.  There will also be events on July 17th at Hawks Ridge, July 24th at Enger Park and on the 31st at Irving Park.  Contact the City of Duluth Volunteer Coordinator Cheryl Skafte for more information and to sign up.  (218-341-8454)
