A Season is Ending
Season is Ending
We have to say good-bye for a while and hope to see each other at the Nature Area next spring. It was a pleasant 6 months (May-October) for all who found the time to volunteer. The increasing number of visitors was very encouraging. As it turned out, many people came a few times during the season to look at the changes in nature. The benches along the Seaplane road are a success. Together with their parents some little children have carried a backpack with snacks and learn to sit still and view the egrets, swans and Great Blue Herons looking for food in the bay. So many dragonflies now hover above the meadow like little helicopters. They don't have to fear the birds, feeding their young, anymore. There is so much to explore and see!
It is now time for me to thank everyone who has helped to make this year a success:
and hostesses who watched the welcome station.
I only hope, I have not omitted anyone, because we all are very grateful for the community help. This place would not be as it is, without YOU!
Spring and fall are the best time of the year to work at the Nature Area. May we count on you again in 2008? The conservancy is also pleased about the response to our questionnaire in the last newsletter. Be assured, we will contact you!
Wishing you a safe winter, enjoy the long awaited travels and stay healthy.
