It was the perfect afternoon for a nice walk down in the coulees. We were at my parents house for the weekend so I thought I would go for a walk down in the coulees that I grew up playing in. The cattails were ready to release their seeds. Cattails go by many names. In the United Kingdom they are known as bulrushes. In the United States they go by cattails, punks, or corn dog grass. They grow in wetter areas, usually along marshes, creeks, or streams. They can be used as biofuel to produce ethanol.
In countries such as Peru and Bolivia, local native tribes use it in the construction of rafts and boats. It can be used for bedding, and insulation in walls.
They were used in World War II as a substitute for life vests for pilots. They would last for over 100 hours of buoyancy.
