Snow and phragmites

Along with a “survey” team from the BPQ Philipsburg Sanctuary project Group we visited the Philipsburg bird sanctuary this morning to check out the old beaver dam … We met birds, very cold winds, the first few snowflakes of the winter and far too much phragmites. We have hopes that the beaver dam can be reinstated and raised so that the levels of water in the marsh and Streit’s Pond can also be raised, thereby increasing the productivity of the marsh and drowning as much as possible of the phragmites.

A lovely morning, if somewhat cold.
