Yesterday, Fall fell

September 23, 2013

Fun fact Monday: Did you know…

Yesterday was the first day of fall. With the cooler weather come displays at your local store of chocolate, marshmallows and graham crackers … encouraging you to make s ‘mores of course.

But to really enjoy s’mores you need to cozy up to a camp fire.

s'moresUnbeknownst to many, camp fire wood may be carrying harmful pests. The Division of Plant Industry wants to help you be certain no pests hitchhike a ride on your firewood. By visiting this website,  you can learn about wood-boring pests and how to prevent their spread.

The main message is Don’t Move Firewood – buy it from local sources and burn it all before you leave the camp site.

Happy fall ya’ll!
