Erosion blankets and seeding (oats and turf grass where applicable) have been placed at most sites where construction work has taken place. The only exception is the east side (OHAC staging area and the Anita Jones access site), as well as the sediment on the school playground.
If you plan to walk around the TNC please try not to walk (includes pets) on the south side. If you decide to walk and see the sites on the south side then please stay on the Pond Circle Trail, as the seeded areas need to get established and grow as quickly as possible. We do not want to pay for re-seeding! Thanks
While the major construction work associated with the actual pond is almost complete, we now move on to the remaining restoration and revitalization tasks we urgently need to tackle.
We have a TNCC meeting scheduled for Sept 10th (check the TNC E-Newsletter for time and location). We will be reviewing this “to do list” at the meeting.
We will need community volunteers to help us do the rest of the restoration work.
In the meantime the outlet valve will stay open and we will continue to drawdown the water (exception is the northeast portion of the pond) as there are some tasks which still have to be carried out in the pond.
By the way we have many visitors dropping by to rest and unfortunately eat the oats and aquatic life.
