This is from Nan...
Please meet tonight in Beaver Pond Park . We will weed and mulch the garden beds, watch the birds, and survey our summer's accomplishments. Yesterday evening, I saw a huge osprey with its bright white belly sitting for a long time in the bare branches of one of the trees. We have many wonderful birds on display to observe while we work.
Date: Wednesday, August 29
Time: 6:00 PM to 7:30 PM
Location: Beaver Pond Park by the benches
In addition, come tomorrow, Thurs., Aug. 30 anytime between 10:00 AM and 2:00 PM to the area beyond the Wildflower garden near Bowen Field. This is the final workday for the Mods at Beaver Pond Park . Students from the Yale School of Forestry and Environmental Studies (FES) will be working with Chris Ozyck, Colleen Murphy-Dunning, and our summer intern of 2006, Margaret Carmalt, to help us clear out the invasive vegetation and plant in its place new evergreen trees (white cedar, red cedar, and spruce.)
Come to look. Come to chat. Come to help. Bring your children in a stroller. Come to walk your dog. All manner of interest is welcome. The students want to meet our community members who care about Beaver Pond Park .
Thanks for all your cooperation and help. Together we will make Beaver Pond Park a field, a forest, and a pond of beauty.
