Staff Picnic and Stepable “Fork in the Road”

Staff, Board and families

On a warm, clear summer evening Indian Creek Nature Center staff, board members and children met to enjoy the evening, food, and to share a heartfelt “thank you” and  goodbye to Nick and Liana Woods who leave soon for a new position in Wisconsin.

Catch, a raucous “lying cheating” croquet game, gathering the eggs, watching the chickens, feeding the bunnies and general relaxed conversation made a lovely evening.  Good tips for rousting the weeds in the entryway spurred me to take action the next morning.  Quite the difference as you can see.

Weedy entryway

Entryway cleared of weeds.

The stepables are growing really well and need occasional watering.  So, as the “Kansas-style” hot weather builds I will use the water from the de-humidifier to replenish the water in the ground.  Lilies are blooming and the hollyhocks are coming into themselves, too.
