Safety Harbor makes plans for air potato round-up



Area residents are invited to an “air potato round-up” at 8 a.m. Saturday in an effort to clear Safety Harbor’s newest conservation property of the destructive air potato vine.


The city recently rezoned the 10-acre Messinger property near Harborside Church on Marshall Street to protect the property from development.

Volunteers who want to help clear the area of the weed, which can destroy trees and other wildlife, should come to 1003 Lake Ridge Drive with clippers, gloves, trowels, sunscreen, bug spray and drinking water.
