We have a lot of that kind of environmental remediation going on around here.Last month, I got to see a bird I've been hoping to see for a long time, an American Kestrel. What a fantastic bird of prey!

A couple days ago, I went to a nearby park and hiked the trails and paved pathway. We're past peak autumn color, but it still looks good.

The park has had some issues with erosion along the river. They recently got a $500,000 grant to fix some of those issues, add a small wetland restoration, and improve water quality. They also added dozens, if not hundreds of small trees earlier this year. This area is part of the work they've been doing. The boardwalk was part of a separate project that connects the park to a recreational path in the area.

I wish the county would learn to adapt rather than try to control mother nature.
