Dear Doug, Thanks for reporting Spurge Laurel. It is really valuable to be made aware of new populations to track it's spread and then be able to prioritize responses. I have also observes spurge laurel in the Melvin Miller park, along with shining geranium, blackberry, and holly, and more! It would be fun and valuable to organize a neighborhood spurge pull party to help protect what is a beautiful wooded park. I will forward this to the City of Eugene and the Oregon Department of Ag Weed Program to determine what kind of response is necessary. Thanks again and keep the reports coming! Sincerely, Tania
