I had a few spare minutes today to wander down the Butterfly Trail In Macedon. My neighbor John Calia had mentioned it to me when we were walking our dogs down the Oxbow. I was coming back from Lyons and it seemed a good time to stop and savor the views. Unfortunately, the wind, a remnant of the recent gales, was bitterly cold, so ten minutes out there was enough for me and my dog.
It was time well spent though. The organisers of this project have excelled here, as you’ll see from my photos here. I’ll let them tell the story.
As you can see, they’ve done a very professional job with the many explanatory signs, rustic bench seats, bird houses and many indigenous plantings.
I am so much more excited now after seeing this project. The Oxbow has so much more potential, because of it’s great location, with the adjacent woodlands, and the backwater of the canal.
We need a lot of help, muscle, money and machines. I’ve already been offered a great discount on a Bobcat, but we’ll need mowers, brush cutters, chainsaws and shovels.
I hope you can come and join us with the cleanup! Please let us know what you can help with.
