Date of volunteer work: 07/23/2018.
Site Name: Indian Creek Natural Area.
Number of hours worked: 2.
I spent 2 hours at Indian Creek picking up trash and was rewarded with seeing a 5 point buck. I spotted him down in the central bowl area leisurely munching on bushes. He was oblivious to me as I sat less than 100 feet from him and watched for nearly half an hour. He finally had his fill and wandered off. He certainly made my day.
While wandering I found 2 sites along the eastern edge/backside of the natural area where people were apparently camping. No tents but sleeping bags and blankets laid out along with personal items as well as garbage. I reported the sites to the Park Rangers.
