Seep Cleanup

This morning we worked on cleaning up the ball park seep. We were getting rid of the umbrella sedge and non-native morning glory which was taking over the whole pond. I think we did a pretty good job, but there's a lot more to go.

The eggs that the volunteers and students saved when the tree blew down, hatched yesterday. I'm sure the new parents will treat the new chicks like their own.

John and Matt are taking out the umbrella sedges and morning glory. The ducks were there watching the whole time, making sure we did a good job, no doubt.

Ew! Cleaning ponds is my least favourite job of all time. Were they wearing shoes????

Yes, they were wearing rubber soled booties, and I just wear my Keen sandals.
