The annual WRN visit to SpruceHaven was well attended this year. Along with a look at screech owl boxes and beehives, the other activities were:
A talk about the Barn Swallow colony and the ongoing monitoring and research project there.
A visit to the salamander monitoring area, with its numbered boards. (Our WRN Teens group has recently taken on this ongoing monitoring project.)
A visit to the beginnings of a prairie grassland.
Ending up with refreshments provided by the owners – Dave Westfall and Sandy and Jamie Hill.
