The crews mowed Phragmites and dead willow opening up more land for wildlife to use and reducing fire risk. Fixed the trails damaged from all the rain and flooding and the beaver damaged flashboard riser.
The crew supported by several volunteers tackled the challenges and got all the nest boxes re-thatched at Ogden Bay this year. This year marks five years of ongoing maintenance of these nest structures.
Coots conduct predation on duck nest and ducklings, so we have decided to bring an awareness to this in fun event. We had 58 people sign up with 27 harvesting two or more coots making a total harvest of 84 coots.
We removed the old tower that was becoming unsafe and partnered with "Youth Build" to design and build this amazing tower/blind. Now the local community can enjoy watching the wild life at Kingfisher with out disturbance.
This year's fair was on June 23rd. We had a nice size crowd show up. Lots of fun stuff for the kids to do, touch and learn about. We want to tank all our vendors and volunteers that made this year's fair a success.
