Winding UP

We are busy getting all our projects finished before we leave SELA NWR. We will be making our way back to Horicon NWR in Wisconsin for the summer, our second summer back.

We have had a busy winter and are happy about all our accomplishments here.

We arrived just in time to help out with the big year event, "Wild Things." That was in October...which means we have been here almost six months. Longer stay than most!!! That was because we vacated Cape Romain early because of a hurricane.

We have gotten to help out at Bayou Teche, building two docks and
assisting with the Eagle Expo.

We took a trip to Delta, helping collect willow branches.

We worked at Atchafalaya, sanding and painting the bridge.

All boards were replaced at Ridge Trail...and now we took care of a slanting boardwalk in one area...the other is under water. The boardwalk at Boy Scouts is now up to par with all loose boards snugged up.

Next week, we have the annual Christmas tree drop at Bayou Sauvage. We painted 6 17" 4 by 6 posts and put all the signs on them to take to Atchafalya on Thursday.

All in all, we have had a good season here.

For some reason, I can't seem to post photos so

Until next time...
