It was a cool, but wonderful Sunday in September, 2006, when my daughter Ute O'Connor and her children Ursula and Kiernan helped me with the observation deck trail at the Nature Area. It needed cleaning-up and the addition of lots of wood chips on the trail. The kids even lined the trail with fallen branches, so that the trail would be more obvious to visitors. We truly had a great time together!
already assisted me many times before at the Nature Area. She learned
about plants such as Purple Loosestrife, and burdock and why it is important
to remove them. We "drilled" holes and planted 3 PawPaw seedling
trees, donated by Ed Hughes, and secured dead branches around some trees
to protect them against deer damage.
