Since the vegetation damaged by the salmon enhancement work we did two years ago has still not completely recovered we decided that our activities this year would be easier on the instream residents of Morrison Creek.  As mentioned in a previous post, we did some invasive removal and replanting at 1st and Willemar as one project.  Our second project was this nest box workshop where a couple dozen wonderful people created almost as many nest boxes for wood ducks or western screech owls, flickers, swallows, and chickadees.  Our thanks go out to Ian Moul for leading this workshop as well as to Chuck Webster for creating the examples and templates that were displayed at Earth Day and to Shamrock fencing for donating much of the wood to create the boxes.
