Work, work, work

We accomplished alot today.  We started out driving over to the Edmunds Unit, the southern part of the refuge that includes Cobscook Bay State Park.  It takes us about 45 minutes to get there.  We live at the Baring Unit where headquarters are located and drive over to Edmunds once a week to fill the information kiosk and we stop over at the park to see if they need anything.  We supply them with coloring books, posters, brochures etc.  The Baring Unit consists of 24,000 acres and the Edmunds Unit has almost 9,000 acres.  We also have 2 trail counters that we take care of as well as get our visitor totals.  There is a great wilderness trail where it is pretty easy to get Spruce Grouse.  Isn't HE gorgeous?!

We next cleared some of the interior roads of overhanging branches here at the Baring Unit, taking down "Don't Feed the Bears" signs, and other various and sundry things.  I needed to be back at the office by 2:00 to sit in for Peggy as she would be in a conference call for about an hour.  Wallace used that hour to weedeat around a couple more kiosks.  After my office duties, I finished up mowing while Wallace used the DR to cut a path for a new trail.  We finished up about the same time.  Tacos for supper!!!
