Letter to the editor: Prairie protection

To the editor:

With technology at our fingertips, why doesn’t the Parks and Recreation system create QR codes specific for each park? Those who then go out to spray the specific park would (1) access the QR code (maybe it’s placed on a sign or in the “work-schedule” that the sprayers maintain); (2) if the codes match, mixture “A” is used; (3) if the codes don’t match, either a call is made to determine what mixture is needed; or (4) perhaps signage at the park would display another QR code that could be verified, and then the correct spray could be applied.

Something this simple could save our prairies and natural habitats!
