June, spraying and mowing continues on the NW field (above and below).
"A total eclipse occurs when the dark silhouette of the Moon completely obscures the intensely bright light of the Sun, allowing the much fainter solar corona to be visible. During any one eclipse, totality occurs at best only in a narrow track on the surface of Earth." (from: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Solar_eclipse)
Cameron King, U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service, and Ken enjoy the wetland blossoming on the NE field. Over 26 wetland species have been planted by seeds or plugs creating a diversity of plants, offering habitat for birds and insects. One top priority is to establish habitat for the Western meadowlark, the State Bird of Oregon, which now faces declined populations due to loss of habitat.
