Happy 2012 from Canis latrans

Our first workday of the new year took place on Saturday, January 14, near Tower Road. A hardy group of volunteers cut buckthorn and burned a brushpile in a winter wonderland. While we were setting up, an eagle-eyed volunteer spotted this coyote (Canis latrans) running across the ice on the far shore of Lagoon #4.

We're looking forward to another year of restoration work at our Tower Road and Sedge Meadow work areas. Winter workdays are especially fun - stave off cabin fever by getting outside in the snowy woods, cutting some brush, and staying warm by a cheery bonfire.
