The public users of Myers Park (and the Lansing Highway Dept.) would balk at 
leaving the grass 9 inches long!  We may not like it, but the culture is such 
that Myers Park grass has to be mowed short.
I think they will have to go with 15-18 inch high "goose fences" and Border 
Collies.

But then maybe all these geese will end up in Stewart Park where it is already 
"poopy" enough!

  The large airports have learned to stop cutting the grass so short.  I 
believe over 9  inches discourages them.   But that goes contrary to the 
American ideal, eh?

  I have not read the article, but I feel lawns are "nuisance".

  So if you have lawn then the geese love to be on the lawn!



  Just my thoughts.

  See article about "nuisance" of CANADA GEESE in the mowed lawn areas at 
Lansing's Myers Park.

  Members of the informal group Friends of Salt Point (FOSP) discussed this 
issue a little at yesterday's regular meeting with Town of Lansing's Recreation 
Director, Steve Colt. Steve is a member of Friends of Salt Point and is looking 
for humane ways to "get the geese to go somewhere else".
  He has found a fair amount of information on this topic that he shared with 
Candace Cornell, me, and the other members of FOSP who are all Lansing 
residents.
