In March, Greg Kramos of Fish & Wildlife and Al Alspach of Master Landscape (on the left) devised a plan to use the natural drainage in the Creek Field to create an intermittent wetland. After Al used his trusty blue tractor to form several dikes, there were two small snowfalls that melted into the field. Then on April 9, 2013 we had an inch of rain, and two days later the hoped-for-wetland was still holding water. And hosting visitors!
