Blue Heron Ludwigia pull

We are BAAAAAAAACK! Time to get our boots on and head back outside! 

The Blue Heron Wetlands are almost DRY! At this time last year there was roughly 2 feet of water... now there is 6 inches. The Donut Hole Pond dried up 7 weeks early this year.... Climate Change? Probably! 
Either way, come see a unique cool system that is undergoing unbelievable change. These wetlands won't look like they do forever. The wetlands is so dry that we can actually pull Ludwigia in an area that was underwater until August of last year. Please join us in our first volunteer event of the season. 
Since it will be hot, expect a relaxing, short day! You will earn your sandwich and coke faster than ever before. 
We will meet at 10am sharp on Saturday, June 27th at the NE 17th and Blue Heron Drive Swale. 
IF YOU LIVE IN THE EAST COLUMBIA NEIGHBORHOOD PLEASE SPREAD THE WORD!
