Our Past: City of fountains and flowers
Thursday, March 22, 2018
Photo: File PhotoImage 1of/1CaptionCloseImage 1 of 1Alton can truly be said to be the “City of Fountains and Flowers.” The city streets are a popular tourist attraction in the spring when several varieties of flowering trees are in bloom. The trees have been planted through the efforts of Pride, Incorporated, a service organization founded in 1966 by Dr. Gordon Moore. Other organizations such as Community Service League of Alton have promoted the beautification effort, selling hundreds of the flowering trees each year at reasonable price. Each street planted with the carefully selected trees features a different variety. lessAlton can truly be said to be the “City of Fountains and Flowers.” The city streets are a popular tourist attraction in the spring when several varieties of flowering trees are in bloom.

Refuge Notebook: How invasive plants invade the landscape
I just returned from the Dalton Highway, a thousand-mile road trip from Soldotna that can take as long as you want. Sometimes I do this trip in a manic, coffee-infused 20-hour drive that’s a little reminiscent of “Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas.” Other times I putz, camping wherever and whenever.It was different this time. I hit peak flowering for White Sweetclover (Melilotus albus), an invasive legume native to Asia and Europe that was introduced to the American colonies in the 1600s, likely as cattle forage. Now, four centuries later, I couldn’t help but notice its white flowers almost continuously marking the Alaska Highway for 700 miles between Girdwood and Coldfoot. Sweetclover was introduced to Alaska in 1913 as a potential forage crop and was foolishly cultivated to become more cold hardy.What’s troubling is that en route to the Brooks Range, the highway (and sweetclover) intersects some big river basins on both sides of the Alaska Range: Susitna, Nenana, Yukon, Kanuti and Koyukuk. Sweetclover seeds not... (Kenai Peninsula Online)
