The HAS Lewis Farm Preserve was hit by a microburst on July 6th that took down the tops of a number of large trees, blocked the entrance to the preserve, and dropped some large limbs on many of the trails. A very special thank-you goes out to our property steward, Bob Winter, for his extraordinary work clearing up the mess. Bob spent 8 straight days of work with a heavy-duty chainsaw and bucket loader to clear up the entrance and trails. We are so lucky to have Bob, and other volunteers like him, who step up and do substantial work to keep our preserves open for us to enjoy.
Please drop Bob a note to thank him (firstname.lastname@example.org), and do go visit the preserve soon!
Hot and a little buggy in summer, but great birding!
