Date of volunteer work: 12/31/2018.
Site Name: Powell Butte Nature Park.
Number of hours worked: 1.5.
Entered the park from the east side – Wildwood trail and explored most of the east side. All was fairly quiet, as expected this time of year. I saw two hawks (not sure what kind), two Kestrels perched at the top of Doug firs warming themselves in the sun, and a few crows (maybe a few short of a murder). I was noting new green growth; what I could identify was yarrow, lamb’s ear, what I think was foxglove. The vernal pond that forms on the northeast side of Summit Lane is now present (see image).
