Some of our wildflowers have come and gone. The summer camps have not been out the Watershed Center in a number of weeks. A few geese are added to our local population weekly. Summer is drawing to a close.

This past Friday, we said goodbye (for now) to our summer interns. They have done a wonderful job keeping the place up out here and an even better job teaching the public about clean water. We greatly appreciate all of our college students who come out here to help. Last Monday and Friday, we had large groups of students working on projects around the site with help from our nearly retired interns. This Monday, I worked with students from Drury on a Jordan Creek Cleanup near Silver Springs Park. It is so great to see so many of the students that call Springfield home (if only for a few years) getting involved and making the community better than they found it. Tomorrow, we get to work with employees of City Utilities through the United Way Day of Caring event! All of this volunteer work is making our education center, and our streams, look a lot better lately!

Thanks to all of you who have helped pick up trash, build a trail, or stain a building. Without you, the Watershed Committee would be unable to carry out our mission to “sustain and improve water resources”.  We appreciate the work that you do.

-Rob Hunt, Watershed Center Coordinator
