We stopped by the site today to see how things were going. Since the rain has returned the plants have taken advantage. River is very high. Two days ago, Richard and Christine watched Tanka tree a Momma and two cubs of the Black Bear variety! No bears today.
Looks like we will need a bigger mower. The lanes are grown up all the way to the end.
Richard planted a few more Elderberry around Net 11 and we all pulled some Ceasar Weed and Air Potato. While assessing the thought of what might happen if the county actually comes in to clear some fallen trees from the river we also cleared some areas of dead and broken palm fronds (most likely from the bears looking for food).
As Richard cleared some grass from the edge of the river he discovered what appeared to be a burrow. Perhaps a den for some furry mammal?
Three more weeks until the new session begins!
Next (planned) Banding Day: Sunday, August 7th.
All nets will be opened by 6:20 A.M.
