Team Thursday

Thursday, May 21st 2015

Work on the waterfowl feeding platform and boardwalk is now nearly complete. The new path gently meanders through Larch trees ending in a viewing area above the lake. The contractors have done a really smart job here; we are really excited to see the project finished tomorrow. Volunteers were working in this area this morning to make sure that there were no obstructions along the path from low hanging branches and to prune back bushes around the viewing platform.

Once clear we moved into the scrapes to continue weeding out invasive willow, Silver Birch and Brambles that have grown in this wetland habitat, allowing for a more diverse ground flora to develop.

Thank you to everyone who has helped us with these jobs.
