Wildlife on McDowell Creek during the Drought Summer of 2018

McDowell Creek was low and thin during the drought this past summer--but it was still there, still a source of life for so many creatures, as shown by this collage from our trail cam.  

Wildlife has always used the creek as a corridor but this summer it was especially important as a source of food, drink, and refreshment.  

Bless our upstream neighbors--Al, Jeff, and Brad--who manage their land for water quality, among other things.  Our stretch of McDowell Creek is cleaner and more wildlife-friendly because of them!
