Cotton Wood Hatch

It's that time of the year again. The cotton wood seeds just started dropping. If you are unfamiliar with cotton wood seeds, these are sticky little buggers that get stuck to the bottom of your shoes, your pets paws, anything really that comes in contact with the ground. They can leave behind a yellow resin on materials like fiber glass, so you might notice a yellow color on the floor of a shower. 

After all the sticky seeds have fallen, then comes the cotton as the seeds open. It does get a little messy. We do our best to stay on top of the cleaning of our bathrooms and our sites. The important part to remember is to clean out your a/c vent after you leave our park to ensure that your a/c unit works properly. Otherwise the cotton wood seeds do not do any damage.
