Clean up cancelled!

In view of the current pandemic, we will not be able to group up for our annual clean up of The Oxbow!

But, there is no reason for you to stop visiting and doing some work on your own or with your children and spouse.

As you can see here, someone has been busy routing through the woods and shoreline. It still amazes me how much debris is still around. I found two tires today, but they need digging out when I get time.

One job folks can do is to “Pick Up Sticks’ . There are lots of them around, so plenty to do. I’ve been placing them in piles in the woods, and as you can see, over the past couple of years, they have grown quite large.

My dogs, Barkley (the best dog in the world-) and Morgan (hmmmm!) are looking into one pile here because some furry friend has made a den there. So these woodpiles provide cover and will encourage animals to stay here.

We could do with some leaf raking too, so I can plant more seeds and make flower beds. Lets make this a haven for birds, butterflies and bees.

Please come down and spend a couple of hours helping out, but be safe – practice ‘social distancing please!

I live in Fairport, and my home is at The Oxbow section of The Erie Canal. I fish, have a pontoon boat and like messing in boats. (see www.mud-skipper.com). I'm retired and enjoy every day living here with my wife Carol and our two dogs.
