High Point Trail Cleanup : We lucked out with dry weather on Saturday April 20 for the annual trail clearing event at the High Point Preserve under the stewardship of the Edward L Rose Conservancy. The volunteers used chain saws, loppers, and hand power to remove fallen limbs and trees from the hiking paths and manage some of the drainage flows. Many thanks to the team of Keith Oberg, Roxie Oberg, Tim Matthews, Terry Matthews, John Titus, John Renner, Scott Heckman, Kenna Lou Mills, Russ Cole, Anthony Palombaro, Chris Wilkerson, Tatiana Wilkerson, Neko Wilkerson, and Tatiana's mom Svetlana.
The vernal pools were rich with amphibian life. There were large mats of egg masses from early breeding wood frogs, with tadpoles ready to hatch, along with some cloudy egg masses from spotted salamanders. A large number of green frogs of various sizes were gathered getting ready for their breeding event in May - July.
Thanks to Keith for his organization and communication.

In early March 2019, on the frozen surface of SIlver Lake, a dramatic scene of scavenging took place. Warning: this video contains some scenes that show a dead deer being scavenged by multiple types of carnivores.
The body of the young deer was observed on the ice and prints in the snow told of an extended feeding event. The cause of the deer's demise is unknown but the deer became food for many other animals all trying to survive the winter season.
A trail camera captured some of the scavengers including a fox, vulture, crow, and a bald eagle. Four bald eagles were seen in the vicinity of the carcass and many eagle talon prints were seen in the snow.
In a curious observation, in multiple places on the periphery of the scene, there were small hemlock twigs located on the ice adjacent to where eagles had been standing.
