Remember Readers:

Hello all.

With 2009 rapidly coming to a close I felt like it was time to ask you what you thought the best posts of 2009 were. If I get enough responses, I'll post a reader's pick towards the end of the month. Take a look around if you don't remember, I have covered an amazing amount of material since I began this journey last spring.

I also wanted to apologize in advance if I am a little slow over the next week with new posts. I have reached the end of the semester and the next four or five days are going to be pretty chock full with finals prep.

I'm looking forward to seeing what your favorite posts were.

Enjoy your Tuesday.

The posts on Robin Hood and after the thunderstorm are a couple of my favorites.

The two that I thought were the most powerful I have never been able to relocate. The first was shots of beautiful insect life, a fledgling, and wildflowers along Cedar Creek just upstream from Ott St.
The secound was a post from a day or two later, when in a misguided attempt by Wild Lands and Parks & Rec. to remove purple loosestrife that same wetland habitate was completely trashed by heavy equiptment, and all the wildlife destroyed. Very powerful,very sad. Excellent reporting. Can you tell me where to find it?

Andrew I think the post that was so informative and moving was Oct. 10th. I found it and then I couldn't. Help.

Hi Sue,

My apologies for taking so long to get back to you. I had a hectic week with the semester wrapping up.

I found three posts that I believe are the ones you are looking for and all three oddly enough are about the destruction of habitat at Cedar Beach.

The first is from early August, I went into the buffer at CBP and took some photos of wildlife. A few days later, in an ill advised attempt at removing invasive species, the buffer was mowed down.

The second and third are from October. After planting the new Riparian Buffer, a large section of it was paved over.

I hope these are what you are looking for. Let me know, and thanks for reading.

The stream buffers are a great concept for wildlife and to protect our streams and drinking water, as you have said Andrew. I'm just not as sure as you are that this is really established policy yet. Grass was still being cut right up to the stream in late summer and some buffers are way, way too narrow.

I agree anon, I have my fingers crossed that this summer, real positive change happens. I am surely going to be keeping an eye on it.

I thought WILDLANDS had developed a plan for the city. Anybody out there seen it?
