Video on CWMA's boot brush project

WSIU's InFocus program recently highlighted the CWMA's efforts to install boot brushes at trailheads across southern Illinois.  You can watch this short video at  

These brushes were installed as a tool to help remove invasive plant seeds from shoes.  We encourage anyone to use these brushes when they go out hiking.  In 2010, Misty McElyea, an intern with the CWMA researched the effectiveness of these boot brushes.  You can see an article on the project at:
