Tick talk

Oh yes, it's that time of year. Take a short walk on the trail and you'll find them. Just brush them off and you you'll be fine.

Clean Sweep

A group of kids from the Trinity Lutheran VBS program in Grand Island came out to the center this morning to do some community service. They cleaned, swept, picked up trash and cleaned the sidewalks. What a great help!

It wasn't all work, we took a nice walk to the Platte and listened to the birds and smelled a skunk. 

Thank you so much for your help and I hope you can make it back sometime soon.

A walk over the bridge

We had a rain storm with a fair amount of hail last weekend at the center. On Saturday morning, it had the smell of a fresh cut hayfield. A good smell! Today, it has the smell of fermenting grass, not as nice. It really beat down the vegetation and I know the local farm crops took a beating. I hope they are able to recover. As I walked over the bridge, I was greeted by the herd of cattle that are grazing where the trail system used to be. Yes, we are working with our friends at the Whooping Crane Trust to re-establish a series of trails through the mixed grass prairie. I can't wait!
