How we celebrated Mr. Calvert’s prestigious award on June 1st 2013

And you thought that car tires are bad for the stream .... Clean stream rocks That is why he wins awards - Mr. Calvert has endless enthusiasm for nature and teaching This looks good on the cake, not in the stream! We love Mr. Calvert!

May 2013 Notes

  • Still some garlic mustard but not as much.
  • Some trees have fallen since April and many roots of trees are visible along the banks.
  • The banks are still very steep and show more erosion from recent storms.
  • Cleared 5 tires from the stream – four from cars and 1 from a truck.
  • We also cleared two bike tires.
  • There was not much other litter, compared to the last several clean ups.  There were only 3 bags collected.
  • Cleared lots of bamboo in two sections.  Bamboo is an aggressive invasive plant and one of the fastest growing plants in the world.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bamboo  There were a lot of young bamboo shoots in a section that the team cleared in May and June of 2012 at the foot of Charles Rd.
  • We also continued to stress more mature bamboo along the bank of Winding Creek between the creek and Edgebrook Road near the intersection with Middle Rd.
  • We saw 7 squirrels and 3 rabbits, 5 ducks and many other birds
  • Water was very clear, and the current is fast
  • Clover is in bloom and ferns are up.
  • There is gypsy moth on the sycamore trees, and it is an invasive species.
  • We saw phytoplankton in several spots http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phytoplankton
  • There was still some garlic mustard, but not nearly as much as in April, when we cleared out a lot of this invasive plant.
