Bidwell Park tackles starthistle with pointed plan

Full story: Chico Enterprise-Record

Its yellow centers are bright and appealing, but the thorns around the sunny center are a nuisance, say cyclists about yellow starthistle, which covers much of Bidwell Park.

There were problems with the goats because a lot of people let their dogs run wild. Several baby goats were killed. Too bad.

So you mentioned how the starthistle is not native, but you refuse to tell the public who, or why they were brought here. From what I heard the Bidwells owned a shoe making shop. To force the natives to buy shoes the Bidwells had these intrusive weeds imported. Pretty greedy if you ask me. Supposedly the shoes were made by Native American slaves at the top of Bidwell Mansion and when one would die from heat stroke they would just push her off the roof and replace her with another one.
This is completely false.
